Nvidia-smi No devices were found

using esxi 8.0 i have a nvidia GeForce RTX 3060, but I’m not able to get it to work on any distro, be it ubuntu, Kali, Debian etc, I tried them all, went through this board with a fine tooth comb and tried all tips but no luck so far. Attached is my bug report.
I tried the latest version NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-535.113.01.run,
tried the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-470.199.02.run
no luck, tried random inbetween versions too.
When i do a sudo lspci -nn -d 10de: -vvvv I get a ton of output that shows me the card exists, i’ve used the card on the same esxi server on a windows 11 VM without a problem, it’s just the linux distros I can’t seem to get it to work. Any suggestions?
