HP DL380 G5 with vmware esxi 5.0u3 - Bios update (System ROM)

Hi, I have a test environment made of a dl380 g5 server with mounted on it vmware hypervisor esxi 5.0u3 (hp custom image). The server is already updated with latest SPP (2014.06.0). The problem is that the system ROM (BIOS) does not update. From the HP VMWare recipes it tells me to install the 2011.05.02 (P56) System ROM. On the server I have the 08.03.2008 (P56). 

This seems to be the cause of multiprocessor BSODs on VMs that I create on it (BSOD with Windows VMs set up with more than 1 core cpu).

Please, can you address me to find the correct BIOS for above environment?

Thank you ,

Francesco B.

2014.06.0 was the last SPP to support that server. You will have to download the individual ROM update component the latest looks to be 2015.08.16 (A)(1 Oct 2015)

Re: HP DL380 G5 with vmware esxi 5.0u3 - Bios update (System ROM)

On this hpe recipe (http://vibsdepot.hpe.com/hpq/recipes/Jun2016VMwareRecipeSPP201604_20.6.pdf ) vmware and HP bios requirements I see:

DL380 G5 P56 - 2011.05.02 - iLO2 - 2. 27

Can I even update to the version you indicated? (2015.08.16 (A)(1 Oct 2015))

Thank you

Ps: I have already updated to the 2011.05.02 and it seemed to have solved my problem.
