:geek: Are you running Raid with the Areca 1210 in esxi 4? Is it your primary store containing both your install and data or are you running off of a memory stick?

Thanks in advance!

From his signature you can see that he has ESXi installed to a USB flash drive so he'd only be using the Areca controller for datastore storage.

I'd expect that in the next release of ESXi (Update1) the drivers will likely be incorporated into the install so you would be able to install directly to the controller. If you want to do that today then you'll need a custom oem.tgz file.

Have you tested passthrough(IOMMU)? I mean does this MB support it?
