Hi Illusion,

2. Have you downloaded the HP customized ESXi image Download VMware vSphere


Yes to both.

Have you tried to disable the card in BIOS and install ESXi6.0? After installation try to enable the card and if ESXi will not find it please try to install the driver for HP Flex 536FLB VMware vSphere 5: Private Cloud  Computing, Server and Data Center Virtualization

This driver is compatible with ESXi 6.0 according to the VMware compatibility guide.

Server has been rebooted several times.

"Virtual Connect Flex" has been patched with the latest firmware.

Downgrade firmware on blade then upgrade firmware (HP_SPP)

Created a new server profile for the blade and then it started to work!??

Really don't know which of my action that solved the issue, but now things works as they should  Smiley Happy

Case closed.
