RE: How do I undo PCI-Pass-through of the bootable ESX-i on the SD card?

Unfortunately this is not a good situation.

VMware has written a knowledgebase article about this specific situation (KB2068645) -

For your reference:


To avoid this issue, enable USB devices for passthrough instead of enabling a USB controller for passthrough.

Note: VMware does not support enabling USB controllers for passthrough if the ESXi host is booting from a USB device or SD card connected through USB channel.

To work around this issue, burn a new image to the USB device or SD card.

Caution: All ESXi configurations are lost after re-imaging.
