Purple screen of death after Firepro S7150 driver installation on ESXI host

My hardware:

Server - Dell Poweredge R730

Graphics card - AMD FirePro S7150

CPU - 2x Intel Xeon E5-2620 v4 @ 2.10 Ghz

RAM - 64 GB

OS - VMWare ESXi 6.5.0

HDD - 300 GB SATA

 

So the problem I'm having is whenever I install the amdgpuv.vib file from the MxGPU setup script. I run the sh mxgpu-install.sh -i command and it seems to detect the Firepro card. After it says that the installation is successful I reboot the server and then I'm met with the purple screen of death.

 

I'm following this guide doc: https://www2.ati.com/relnotes/amd_mxgpu_deploymentguide_vmware.pdf

 

 

I can get it working again by rolling back, but I don't know how to configure anything when this happens. What am I doing wrong?
