Disks not available during ESXi Upgrade on HPE servers

Today I did an ESXi update on some HPE DL380 Gen9 servers for a customer. I attached the ISO and rebooted the first host as always. But during the update process no disks was shown to update / install the ESXi host.

ESXi Installation 1 - Disks missing

 

Resolution:

The issue was, that I should take the HPE Custom ESXi ISO.

Reboot again with the right ISO and I could start the update.

ESXi Installation 2 - Disks available

Hope it helps some others out there.
