Description (partial)

"The server supports up to two internal Cisco FlexFlash drives (secure digital [SD] cards). The first SD card is preloaded with four virtual drives. The four virtual drives contain, respectively, the Cisco Server Configuration Utility, the Cisco Host Upgrade Utility, the Cisco C-Series server drivers set, and a blank virtual drive on which you can install an OS or a hypervisor. The second SD card is blank and can be used to mirror the first."

It says "a blank virtual drive on which you can install an OS or a hypervisor".

Customers read this and try to install any OS on the flexflash hv partition

But according the DE who worked on the bug CSCur26074, the following OS are supported in a flex flash hv partition on C series servers:

ESXi 5.0 U2, U3
ESXi 5.1 U1, 5.1 U2
ESXi 5.5, 5.5 U1, 5.5 U2

So the OS should be specifically mentioned so customers don't try to install any OS on it and call TAC for support.
