I currently have an ARC-1880i that I'm trying to use with ESXi 4.1. I tried following the document (ftp://ftp.areca.com.tw/RaidCards/AP_Drivers/VMware/ESXi_4.x/1.20.00.15_100202/README.txt
) but wasn't successful loading the driver. I am running ESXi on a thumb drive and trying to access the Raid. FYI, I followed the directions for 1-11 at the bottom of the document. I checked with Areca and they say that the driver works. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong or what. I'm a windows guy so I'm totally foreign to this process and the commands. I am just trying to utilize a machine I already have to run a few VM's. Any help greatly appreciated.
