HPE ESXi 6.5 or 6.7 for DL 380e Gen8

Dear All,
I'm looking for an HPE ESXi 6.5 or 6.7 Iso file for dl 380e Gen8 servers.
In the HP server matrix is marked that only 6.0 is supported.
Did any one has build an iso for ESXi  6.5 or 6.7 for DL 380e gen8 or can say how to build such an iso.

Best regards

Hello Marko 

This Server DL380e Gen8 will not support Esx 6.5 or ESX 6.7 . Instead you can use ESXi 6.0 U3 for this unit. 

Please refer to the below OS Support Matrix link with OS Certified and tested to be installed on this server.

I look forward for any additional Questions from you.

Hello,

thanks for the reply. I know that matrix.
I read an interesting article on the Web that describes how to implement hardware drivers for a standard ESXi 6.7 installation.
Unfortunately that post is in german:
http://technet.servermeile.com/vmware-esxi-treiberpaket-in-das-installationsmedium-einbinden/

Does anyone test such an implementation?
I also looked for the hardware driver for the DL380e Gen8, but I can`t find this drivers.
Could someone send me a link for downloading the DL380e Gen8 hardware drivers please?

Kind regards

Hello 

Thank you for the reply. 

As I mentioned in my previous reply the said OS ESX6.7 is not ceritified and tested on our DL380e Gen8 machine . Hence we do not have any drivers for the same. 

The link you shared is a third party link and we do not authorize any such testing on machines which are not compatible with respective OS. 

I look forward for any additonal questions. 

Thank you
