    Hi there

    Is it still possible to install an ESXi on a host with a legacy cpu? (I have done it before when Version 6.x or so was current...)
    In my case I would like to try the ESXi 8u1a on a ESXi currently running the latest 7u3m whose cpu is not official longer supported on 8u1a.

    I think I did it as described in that blog article:

    Has anyone done that yet?

    Thank you guys
