    Previous instace of esxi installation not detected during vSphere 6.5 upgrade

      Hi There,


      I am trying to upgrade standalone ESXi host from ESXi, 5.5.0, 6480267 to ESXi 6.5 Patch 02 on HP DL380p Gen8 hardware using HPE custom image.

      I am using interactive upgrade method. However, during upgrade when I select the datastore (SD Card) on which current ESXi, 5.5.0, 648026 installed, i am not getting upgrade option, it is not detecting previous esxi instace, rather getting 'Install' options which will wipe out the existing configs etc completely. The host is still running fine and no issues with 5.5.


      Am I missing something? I following following KB article, but no luck.
