Upgrade base VMware to HP VMware

We have 2 HP Proliant DL180 G6s and 2 HP Proliant DL380p Gen8s running the standard VMware vSphere 5 Enterprise and Enterprise Plus respectively.  We are looking at upgrading to VMware 5.5 and I would like to know if it is possible to do an upgrade from the standard VMware to the HP custom VMware (https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/details?downloadGroup=HP-ESXI-5.5.0-GA-19SEP2013&productId=353)?

Yes it is possible, BUT if the Upgrade cannot complete or continue, the installer will tell you before it begins the process.

So go for it.

Make sure if using local disk for VMFS datastore, you select YES to Preserve!
