I am getting the following event message (disk - 32) :

The driver detected that the device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 has its write cache enabled. Data corruption may occur.
 I removed the check box to disable disk cache but when I recycled, the check box was unchecked and the messages returned. Is there something I need to change in ESXi?

I changed the virtual disk to a SCSI (from IDE) and the problem went away
