Unfortunately in the past they only omitted the device id from the mapping file, but apparently they specifically restrict it in the driver this time around...


I would guess you tried to manually load the driver or have edited simple.map. With 3.5 I recall someone using a hex editor on the Intel ICH driver to add support for a device ID that wasn't included yet. Might be worth a try in this case as well.

Anyone know if this oem.tgz will work with the 9500S?

I can't say that I've tested it, but according to this it should not work - http://www.3ware.com/kb/article.aspx?id=14922.

Finally, I have made a VMware ESXi 4.0 iso with 3ware-9xxx driver support.
It was harder than I thought :) I will share it with you if someone else have
a need for it. Please link it from http://www.vm-help.com/esx40i/customize_oem_tgz.php
It support 3ware 9690SA and 3ware 9650SE for sure. Dont know if 3ware 9550SX
are supported also. Try it.

@iocc

Would you mind posting the oem.tgz you used to make this work so I can create a disc image myself?

Thanks
