having the same issue running

* HP Microserver Gen8
* HPE Customized Image ESXi 6.5.0 Update 2 version 650.U2.9.6.8 released on September 2018 and based on ESXi 6.5.0 Update 2 Vmkernel Release Build 9298722.
* all Storage on HP Raid

Following procedure...

- Uninstalled the hpvsa 5.5.0-102
- Installed the hpvsa 5.5.0-88
(- DID NOT esxcli system module set –enabled=false –module=vmw_ahci )
- Rebooted

...ended up in:

Boot failed with error "Two filesystems with the same UUID have been detected. Make sure you do not have two ESXi installations"
After overriding this issue, i was glad that the system booted again, but all changes seem somehow reverted (Driver Verison: hpvsa 5.5.0-102)

Did anyone test Driver Downgrade on HPE Customized Image ESXi 6.5.0 Update 2 ?
Do you think disabling module=vmw_ahci should solve my problem and is worth a try ?

mcgrog: Do you think the performance issue should not be present in HPE-ESXi-6.5.0-Update2 any more?

Thanks for your sugestions,

      Hey guys,
      As of June 2020, what are the latest versions of firmware for HP Microserver Gen8 to be installed on the system itself? Also do any other components have updatable firmware/os-independent software?
      So far my list is as follows:
      BIOS - J06 (04/04/2019) iLO 4 - v2.73 (11/02/2020) Intelligent Provisioning - v1.71 (20/02/2019)  
      and I guess the following could also be added (although both out of date):
      Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) - v8.1.0 (21/12/2017) Service Pack for ProLiant (06/11/2017)  
      Date formated as DD/MM/YYYY.
      I believe all the B120i Smart Storage stuff is part of Intelligent Provisioning.

      Hey guys, 
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?

      Is it possible to install any PCIe SATA card and boot from an attached SSD instead of internal MicroSD/USB/ODD?
      Are there any special requirements needed to boot from an SSD connected to a cheap PCIe SATA III card?
      Are there any limitations?
