VM of ESXi 6.7.0 Doesn't recognize network adapter

Hello

I am trying to run an esxi as an azure vm, to test some vmware lab scenarios.

I installed an ESXi 6.7.0 locally in vmware workstation, converted the vmdk to a vhd file and migrated it to azure. I created an E2s V3 (for nested virtualization support) vm from the vhd.
When looking in the azure serial console I saw the ESXi operating system doesn't recognize any network adapter:

I tried to find online which network adapter and driver azure uses but with no success. I also tried creating a normal ubuntu vm and running lspsci to see the network adapters and drivers, but I can't see the device:
5281-azure-ubuntu-lspci.txt


What NICs and drivers are used in azure? Is it different between different machine sizes or generation? I saw this is different with accelerated networking which uses Mellanox NICs and drivers.
Anyone has any experience with finding network drivers for azure vms or running ESX specifically?

Thanks!
