Upgrading from VMW 6.7 to 7.0 on HPE PL G10 with HPE custom ISO

HI This  https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/78389 preventing me from upgrading & VMW support says this. Can you advise pls ?

Yes, this issue is caused when drivers are built with older vmkapi version dependencies which are deprecated from ESXi 7.0 GA onwards. However, it is the vendors who will be releasing the new custom ISO for ESXI with the compatible drivers.

Therefore, i would suggest you to get in touch with the hardware vendor and they might have an ETA on when the new images will be released.

Important information for VMware vSphere 7.0
