Hello,

I have buyed MB Supermicro X11SRA-F with Intel VROC RAID technology. Installed two drives SAMSUNG 4TB...but no visible in VMWARE

Not possible to install VMWARE on it. I have tried to update BIOS of MB /latest 2.5/

I have tried to install Intel VMD driver separratelly when I have installed VMWARE on old disk before /on non VROC drives all works fine - only VROC RAID is not visible and disk is not usable

my driver is "iavmd_2.7.1.1002-1OEM.700.1.0.15843807" from pages of Intel

I have spent lot of money by VROC technology and special drives. I dont want to believe, that it is so new, that is not supported
