RE: New Dell R730 can't select Local SD card as boot device

Have you installed VMware to the SD?

You should boot to media containing VMware and then install VMware to the SD module. The SD module is presented as a hard drive.

In UEFI boot mode you can choose <F11> during boot>UEFI Boot Menu>UEFI Boot Option Maintenance>Boot From File

In that menu it should list the SD module. If you have already installed VMware to the SD module then you can use that option to attempt to boot from it. If it is still unable to boot from the SD then reinstall VMware.
