This is a very useful blog that has come from www.vi-tips.com and I have posted it below.
The HP BL460c G7 is on the VMware HCL list for ESX 4.1. However, when trying to install ESX 4.1 there’s an error during install – it fails to load drivers for the network adapter ("No network adapters were detected"). It doesn’t help to update all firmware to latest version (even though this should be done in any case…) (Update 2011.02.18: This problem persists on ESX 4.1 U1)
- Upload the ISO file to where you have the ESX installation image
- On the Custom Drivers page in the wizard, choose Yes and click on Add. It will tell you to load the driver CD (see picture below)
- Unmount the ESX installation CD and mount the driver ISO in stead. This can be done without interrupting the installation. You will be prompted to verify the custom driver package, click OK (see picture below)
- That’s it. at a later stage in the wizzard, you will be prompted to reinsert the installation ISO. Do that when prompted.
