VMware vSphere 7 EssentialKit license key valid for VMware VMvisor Installer 6.5U03-18071574-DellEMC

We have  VMware vSphere 7 Essential Kit  3 Host ( Max. 2 Processor per host) license key. 

We installed VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.5.0.update03-18071574.x86_64-DellEMC_Customized-A08 and assigned license key of VMware vSphere 7 essential kit,

but an error occurred  “Please provide valid license key”.

Please advise, because have a Dell server, its hardware is not compatible with VMware VMvisor 7.0
