You cannot upgrade the firmware from within ESXi 5.0, so you will need to restart the server, and upgrade using the Smart Update Firmware DVD Version 10 or Create a USB version of it.

Smart Update Firmware DVD Version 10

Download and Create a USB as follows

Copying the ISO Image file to the HP USB Key Utility For Windows

The HP USB Key Utility is a Windows application that will allow the user to copy the Firmware DVD contents to a USB memory key.  Users may then run the Smart Update Firmware applications from a USB key instead of from the DVD.  To download the HP USB Key Utility for windows, go to:  www.hp.com/go/foundation.
