I have an issue here with my ESXi server from VMware. I added a Dawicontrol "DC4320" Sata Controller to spend my ESXi more space for VMs. I also put some Sata hard drives on it and they are also shown in the BIOS of the Sata Controller.

Now I did a new install of ESXi and I thought that my hard drives are also shown up now but they are not.

Is there anything I could do?

The VMWare forums suggest it can be beat into submission, but it is officially not supported, and if you have any additional problems with it VMWare will not support that configuration.

Always check that hardware is supported on ESXi before buying it: ESXi Compatibility List
