Hey all thanks for reading.

Im getting strange errors and stranges going on with my test esxi box.

I got a P5D Deluxe motherboard I just brought, I got 4 drives that are 250 gigs Sata, in the raid controller, Intel Matrix I think its called, the raid seems fine and shows up at around 700gigs, but when im in ESX, add datastore, it just adds the indivitual drives and not as a whole logical drive.

Cant seem to see much online, so hope you all can help or pass some ideas my way

thanks again
