Errors installing Azure HCI Stack VMware VMs

I am attempting to install the a 2 node Azure HCI Stack onto a ESX host using Vsphere. I found the hardware validation script to help assist with the deployment errors i was receiving on the portal. Any assistance with resolving these errors would be appreciated. I did add a virtual TPM module on each server.

    Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft Q&A forum.

    It seems that you're facing issues related to hardware requirements and configuration:

    • Review and ensure that your virtual machine configuration meets the Azure Stack HCI hardware requirements, including the number of disks, disk types, disk sizes, and TPM configuration .
    • Consult the VMware documentation and ensure that the virtual TPM module is properly configured and enabled on the virtual machines.
    • If the issues persist, you may need to contact Microsoft support or seek assistance from the VMware community for further guidance on deploying Azure Stack HCI on ESXi hosts.

    I am thinking that the vm needs to be configured to present NVME or ssd drives to the OS and not scsi. but that won't help with the
