Post Promise EX8300/8350 w/ESXi 4.0 U1?
This is an older RAID card... Unfortunately, it's what I've got until I can invest in a full ESXi system with handpicked hardware.

I don't see this specific card listed anywhere in any of the HCLs. There are several drivers out there for linux kernels. The driver is stex.c as far as I can tell.

Anybody know if another promise driver might do the trick? Or might I be able to get some help compiling one for ESXi from source?

thanx.

You would have to take the source and compile it specifically for ESXi. This guide is for a NIC but it'll give you the basic idea of what you need to do - http://www.kernelcrash.com/blog/using-a ... 009/08/22/.
