ESXi 5.1 no disk available
Posted on 2014-02-07
I am installing ESXi 5.1 on a new server. When the installation gets to the point where it is asking to choose a disk for installation there is no disk available, local or remote. I am installing the software on an HP DL 380e Gen 8, 2 - E5 2420 Xeon processors, 64 GiB ram, 2 mirrored 300GiB SAS hard disks, HP Dynamic Smart Array B320i controller. VMware KB articles have stated that local SAS disk may list as remote but can still be selected, but the machine is not listing the disk as local or remote.
