HP Customised VMware ESXi Images

Home / VMware / HP Customised VMware ESXi Images

The new Proliant Gen8 servers require you to use a customised image for the installation of ESXi to be a success.  The network and storage drivers are combined in the HP customised image and therefore you are unable to install ESXi with a standard download ISO from VMware.
