During update to ESXi 6.5, I have a warning about a possible compatibility issue with my processor (Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5450). I cancelled the update. It works fine right now with ESXi 6.0. Is there really a risk to make the update ? Is there a temporary issue or the compatibility with the process has been removed ?
VMware inform you that they dont wanna giving support for a CPU from 2007. With 6.7 the ESXi installer drops support for Westmare, Nahalem and all prior CPUs type like yours.
