ESXI 6.7 on HP Microserver Gen8

Recommended Posts

AlexM

Hi,

 

The way I’ve alway upgraded in the past is downloading the HPE .iso and putting in on a USB stick using Rufus, boot the Gen8 up and chose ‘Upgrade’. Am I right in saying 6.7 will no longer boot on Gen8 devices?

 

So do you upgrade using this method?:

Is there any point in using the standard (i.e not HP) vmware 6.7 install?

 

Or am I better off sticking with 6.5u2?

 

thanks,

 

Alex

I managed to update to 6.7 successfully but then I tried to update to 6.7U1 and got the same error 😕

Right... I ended up actually reading @sorted post, and downloaded the patch off vmware.com 

 

Finally up and running with 6.7U1! 😃
