This is about setting up VMware ESXi 5.5 on DELL PowerEdge R510 server. There are 5 pcs of 2TB SAS hdd. My manager want us to create a RAID 5 volume + hot spare, so as yielding a 5.5 TB volume. Just wondering any problem to recognise the volume if system is booting up by ESXi 5.5 CD? After setting up ESXi 5.5 footprint on this volume, would it be any problem to boot up ESXi 5.5 from here? Should I change to use GPT in CMOS?


Please enlighten, thanks
