Re: Dell PowerEdge SC1425
Successfully installed and am now running VMware ESX 4.0.0 build-164009 on Dell PowerEdge SC1425. No special workarounds or other unusual aspects to the install, except that I used an external DVD-RW drive as the source media, rather than the internal CD-ROM drive (ESX 4.0.0 media is DVD, can't use CD media any more). Internal SATA drives are *not* configured for RAID -- two SATA drives installed, one is 76GB, this is root/boot/swap drive; second drive is 200GB SATA Maxstor. Second drive will be used to hold a larger Datastore for more VMs.
Is this using the onboard CERC SATA 2s or a CERC SATA 6ch card?
