NOTE: Dell EMC has migrated the latest revision of the Dell customized ESXi images with customized drivers to VMware's website. This change aligns with industry-standard practices and brings the Dell EMC-customized image to the same location as our competitors. For customers who manage heterogeneous fleets, this simplifies the procurement of SW images as they will all be housed in one location.
