Trying to download Vsphere 6.5u3

Hello,

I am trying to download Vsphere 6.5u3, but every time I get asked to register for evaluation first. Once I passed this step, I get redirected to the download page of 6.7u3.

Many thanks if anybody knows how to access the 6.5.u3 download page.

At the top of the download page, there *should* be an option to choose the version you'd like. It always defaults to the latest. Capture.PNG

That's right, but then I need to click on "Download Trial" and this is where I get redirected to the page showing only 6.7u3 ("2019-08-20 | 6.7.0U3 | 314.66 MB | iso").

Licensed customers can download older versions, but trials/evaluations are always of the latest version.

Got it, thanks!

So my problem is that I hit an apparently known issue in 6.7u3, which is after the Vsphere installation and PC reboot, I get this message "Shutting down firmware services... Page allocation error: Out of resources Failed to shutdown the boot services. Unrecoverable error".

I tried several BIOS workarounds, no luck. So I wanted to revert to an older Vsphere version.

Any hint is welcome.

What Scott said - Sorry, I assumed you currently had a license.

You can use e.g. the ESXi-Customizer Powershell script (https://www.v-front.de/p/esxi-customizer-ps.html) to create an installation ISO image, that includes the latest patches, i.e. resolves the boot loader issue in the currently available ISO image.

As a side note, the latest version of the ESXi-Customizer script is available on GitHub

I was able to download it by creating a new VMware account.
