Failure to install ESXi on RAID 1

Attempting to install ESXi on a RAID 1 results in an invalid partition table error.
Probable Cause:
If an unconfigured physical disk containing an ESXi partition is used in a virtual disk, any attempts to install a partition of ESXi on this virtual disk will raise an error due to failure to clear out the previous partition.
Corrective Action:
Delete the existing RAID 1, run erase physical disk on both drives, re-create the RAID 1 with quick initialization ON, then attempt to reinstall ESXi on the virtual disk.
