vSphere ESXi 5.5 unsupported hardware

Turns out a lot of systems have been dropped from the latest version of vSphere 5.5

Hopefully, this list will shrink as I am sure the recently released  x222 node from the IBM PureFlex Systems will raise some eyebrows.

Double check your vendors support when updating ESXi hosts from VMware vSphere 5.x to 5.5. There are a lot of systems that are no longer supported. The following servers were supported in 5.x but are no longer supported in 5.5:
