how to install ESXi 5 to Transcend IDE Flash Module
Need urgent help from vmware experts inside here...
my rig have these 2 hdds below :
- 2TB Samsung SATA HDD
- 4GB Transcend IDE Flash Module (TS4GDOM40V-S)
my idea is to install VMware ESXi 5 to the 4GB IDE Flash module and use the 2TB SATA HDD as my datastore.
during ESXi 5 installation process, i can only see my Samsung 2TB HDD being listed for installing ESXi 5
and so i press "Alt+F1" to get into the CLI during the installation process, when i type "lspci" i can see my motherboard IDE controller - JMicron JMB368 but when i type "fdisk -l" i can only see my Samsung 2TB HDD being listed.
i have tried Ubuntu, Redhat, Xenserver 6, Windows 7 and etc, all of them can see my 4GB IDE Flash module during the installation process and i can install successfully to the 4GB IDE Flash module.
I also tried to use this guide : http://www.vm-help.com/esx/esx3i/ESXi_i ... _drive.php
but i can't seems to be able to find /installer/Core/TargetFilter.py inside usr/lib/vmware/
Can someone please give me some pointers here ?? why is it that ESXi 5 can recognize my IDE controller but can't see the 4GB flash memory ? Do i need a driver for the JMicron JMB-368 IDE controller ?? Do i need a customized oem.tgz for supporting the 4GB IDE Flash memory ??
