I'm starting to believe I never had ESXi installed on the computer before.

Lol. No idea anyone?

Okay, so it sees the SATA_PROMISE, so I decided to let it use the Promise controlller...

I defined a single RAID0 array on the single HDD I am using.

ESXi barfed on me.
I tried IDE mode, it barfed on me.

I don't recall seeing a VIA sata driver (only a NIC driver).

With the promise controller are you able to see the disk when it is attached using fdisk? You might be able to use this method to get around the system image error - http://www.vm-help.com/esx40i/ESXi_inst ... _drive.php

I could see the HDD each time I used the Promise Controller. After I selected it for install, that's when it crapped out.

Are you saying http://www.vm-help.com/esx40i/ESXi_inst ... _drive.php would fix the issue?
