There have been a few issues with VMware products over the last few years, mostly issues with an incompatibility between the default kernel and ESX/ESXi products. But this seems to be a new one...

Glad you got it working with the ISO.

My personal favourite workaround is to use a different Hypervisor (my preference is ProxmoxVE) but I am aware that that is not always possible or practical.
