I got a PERC 6/i for our build-system machine running ESXi 5.0update1. The hardware is a MSI X79A-GD65 with Intel X79 chipset, Extreme i7 CPU. I also got a SFF8484->4xSATA cable and connected it to 4 SATA drives (WD10EARX), but I can't get the drives to show up in the RAID BIOS.
I have already tried a few different things:
- Connecting the cable to both the different SFF8484 ports.
- Only connecting one drive to RAID card.
Anyone have any troubleshooting tips for me?
