Hi

I am having a strange issue, I am trying to pass a Dell Perc H800 through to a VM

The ESX Host is ESX 4.1 and the VM is Server 2008 r2.

The adapter is passing through fine and windows detects and installs it, but it fails to start, as per the attached screenshot.

I get "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

Is the server certified for use with ESX 4.1 e.g. it's on the HCL?

The H800 is not hosting a datastore on the ESX 4.1 host?

Some devices are not compatible with VMware Direct Path I/O.

I would recommend using a standard HBA, non RAID card.
