No.

What version of ESXi? Are you using the Dell ESXi ISO or a generic from VMware?

Hi,

In addition to what theflash asked, are you trying to install to the virtual disk or create a datastore?

RE: PERC H730 Mini VirtualDisk not detected by ESXi

I'm using generic iso ver 6.5d from VMware and not able to create new datastore from the (8x6TB RAID 10)

Is there any special DELL ESXi ISO?

Hi Josh Craig,

I have tried the customized iso but still unable to detect my 8x6TB drive. Local Dell is passing the blames to VMWARE

Is there any fix for that?

Right now the only fix is to replace with 512 sector drives.
