I got the existing HP ProLiant BL490c G7 installed in the HP c7000 Enclosure G2, Based on this article: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/D
- HP NC551m Dual Port FlexFabric 10Gb Converged Network Adapter (580151-B21)
- HP NC552m 10Gb 2-port Flex-10 Ethernet Adapter (610609-B21)
- HP NC553m 10Gb 2-port FlexFabric Adapter (613431-B21)
- HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 554FLB FIO Adapter (684212-B21)
- HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 554M Adapter (647590-B21)
- HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 554FLR-SFP+ Adapter (629142-B21)
How to check and confirm that type / model from the OnBoard Admin page ?
because I'm about to perform the ESXi 5.1 Update 1 upgrade (using VMware-ESXi-5.1.0-Update1-1065491-HP-5.50.26.iso) on top of the existing ESXi 4.1 installed on those running blade servers.
Thanks in advance.

Expand the device bay and select a server. Click on the Information tab and you will see network and mezzanine info.
You can do this from the CLI by running: show server info all
To get more details about LOM, etc you will need to view the docs regarding the server models.

Note the link you provided also says The following server models are affected and your BL490c G7 is listed there.
This is because it uses the NC553i (i = Integrated) CNA chipset which is identical to the NC553m when it comes to drivers and firmware.

Thanks for the reply, however I cannot find the keyword "Emulex" to make sure that I am downloading the correct Firmware to be applied across 16x HP BL 490c G7 in the enclosure.
is this the correct version of Firmware:
HP Emulex 10GbE Converged Network Adapters and 10GbE Network Adapters
188.8.131.52 (10 Sep 2013)
