You'll want to take the driver (.o) from their download and make your own tgz file. You can use the script here to integrate it into the install image - viewtopic.php?f=12&t=4.

Hallelujah!!!!!!!! She Lives! im going to be doing a post on my site about the confusing miss-information across the web about getting this card working. Old posts, 3.5 and older. Bad info. 10 hours later i get to reboot to ESXi for the first time. Woot! Here is my OEM.tgz for prosperity's sake......

Guys,
iocc wrote:
Finally, I have made a VMware ESXi 4.0 iso with 3ware-9xxx driver support.


I downloaded Iocc's .iso file (Iocc - thanks for uploading!;-), booted from it, ESXi4 installed succesfully, but after restart "cannot find boot device".
In my server I have only 2 disks which 3ware 9650 creates Mirror from, so install for sure was on a volume created by 9650.

Did I miss something?

Thanks!

/M
PS-Im writing for second time, first for some reason doesnt show in thread.

I guess the ISO just had the oem file in the root and not in the dd image
that's pushed out onto the hdd.

You could read how to replace the oem file with this steps:

3) After the install is complete, reboot the host with a bootable Linux CD
4) Modify or copy the oem.tgz on the Hypervisor1 partition
5) Reboot your host and ESXi will boot using the modified oem.tgz file

about your post not showing up, I or David have to approve all first posters. From now on your post will show up after you have posted it.

Hi, gurus

I'm in need of Iocc's oem.tgz (3ware 9650SE) for an Esxi4 installation, but his site is down. Is there anyone who's in possession of the file that can repost it?

Here's the one from the link on the 2nd page of this thread. Make sure you rename it to .tgz.
