Configuring VMware ESXi 4.1 with SATA DISK Drives
Posted on 2010-11-29
I have built a desktop server for myself using following configuration :
AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition 3.2GHz
Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB
Asrock M3A UCC AMD 480X Socket AM3
Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz Memory Kit
My idea is to use this server as an ESXi 4.1 host and create Virtual Machines on fly.
Now somehow ESXi installer is not working for me. I read that ESXi doesn't work with IDE or SATA drives for version 4.X while it was for version 3.5
I also came across people adding custom config within vmware installer to get a SATA drive working. Can someone please suggest me a way to get this config working?
