I know it’s been a while, but I’m encountering the same today, doing my first OSD-based setup on VMWare ESXi 6.7 Update 2. Bluescreen when booting WinPE 1903 or 1809 via PXE in the virtual machines, but the same VMs boot fine when mounting the Windows 10 or 2016 ISO images directly.
I wanted to update to see whether anyone had a good/repeatable solution, and also to post some progress on obtaining VMWare drivers.
I was able to download VMWare Tools from https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/details?downloadGroup=VMTOOLS1032&productId=745 , though mounting the installer from inside a running VM should also be workable. I created an Admin Install Point, by executing
Early in the setup, you are asked to specify a location to store the administrative installation point. I pointed at E:\VMWare.
Once setup is finished, the extracted drivers are available at E:\VMWare\VMWare\VMWare Tools\VMWare\Drivers
I’m still not certain whether that will help, but wanted to post an update on at least being able to obtain & import the VMWare drivers in a “clean” way.
