I have an intel S2600CW server board with an inyel ESRT2 Raid controller.
I am trying to install VMWare ESXi 6.0 on it and the RAID controller is not supported.
Is it supported to download the .TGZ RAID drive from intel site and add it to ESXI iso (Installation file)?
The onboard solution only supports the installation of ESXi in AHCI mode using the ACHI capable controller only. Currently, the ESRT2 RAID controller does not offer support for VMware Operating Systems.
