Did you try install using RAID?
Did it work on these motherboard.

Thank you.

These MBs typically have a software RAID controller like the Intel ICH*R family. ESXi doesn't support this kind of RAID and you'll only see the individuals disks even if you create a RAID array in the BIOS.

I can confirm this setup; I used it for almost a year without problems. At first I installed ESXi 3.5 but a few months ago I upgraded to 4.1 without problems.

Useful to know
- onboard nVidia NIC is recognized, the marvell NIC not.
- all (4) onboard PATA/SATA controllers are recognized and useable, but without the RAID functions (as expected)
- the second PCIe 16x slot can be used as a PCIe 8x slot (e.g. for RAID controllers) by forcing it to SLI mode in the BIOS. I was not successful in getting ESXi to run with a PCI videocard (I tried 4 different types/chipsets)
