Attempt at installing ESXi 7.0 on Gen8

I was playing with vsphere 7 today (latest build) and just did a stock clean install, not the HP image.


P222 raid


the storage on that raid array is incredibly slow, so I’m missing a driver or something. I’ll blow it away and try a supported HP build. 

Can someone share the latest supported image name please? Maybe ver 6.5?




Not sure if it is the latest but I used 7.0.1 HPE image on mine with P222 and it worked ok.

Know I'm reviving from the dead but I could not find the info and it may help someone else.


Installed ESXi 7.0 U2 -- ProLiant -- New*ESXi 7.0 U2 May 2021


From here and then ran an update through esxcli to the latest build 18538813 U2d ( U3 has issues don't do it)



No issues so far but only just started testing. 16gb ram and a 1270 v2 CPU installed using AHCI mode.

CPU mark and crystaldiskmark under a win10 vm are showing great results, only have a very old shitty ssd to test with though at the moment. 80gb SSD ahah... how far we have come.
