I am tryng to install ESX 3.5 on a server with an internal single channal raid controller. But it keeps halting at the ESX driver install. Is there something I need to configure or something I may be missing any help would be greatly appreciated.  I have tried esx noapi but it is not working.

I had a similar problem once - turned out the card was faulty

Can you try to connect the disks to a simple SCSI controller and remove the RAID controller. Not a solution per se but will prove if its your card

I have tested the system with installs of Ubuntu and Red Hat with no problem So i think the the card should be ok.

Should be but it will prove if ESX is not liking that card for some reson - may be not liking the firmware version for instance

ESX is much more picky about hardware than normal Linux distros
