ESXi 5.5 - server 2012r2 install missing SCSI driver

Pretty basic question (I guess): I am trying to create a new VM server 2012r2 under ESXI 5.5 (build 2068190).

At install Windows setup complains about a missing driver (it does not "see" the virtual disks).

As per http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2059549 I am using LSI Logic SAS controller (also tried the PVSCSI HBA controller - same issue).

Have tried to present the drivers present in the /vmimages/floppies/ directory to no avail.

What am I missing ?!

Are you following my EE Article see here (it's applicable for 5.5 as well!)

You should not need to supply a driver, just select Windows Server 2012 template....

BUT a corrupt ISO, can have the affect you are seeing!
