Hi, I was loading ESXi VMWare 6.0 on a new computer and when it gets to the choose your hard drive, it dosen't show up.  I started with an M.2 went to a SSD then a spinner drive.  Windows finds it, as does the BIOS, but ESXi  sees nothing.  This is the same media that I have used before.  The computer is a PowerSpec from MicroCenter, I'm using the onboard sata interface to connect the drives like I usually do.

Question how to rectify this.   Also, is there a place to download a newer iso for ESXi 6.0?  One with a bazillion drivers for storage and network cards?

Thanks all.
