VMware VMvisor Install 5.5 fails to see the hardware Raid 1

I'm trying to install ESXi 5.5 using "VMware-VMvisor-Installer-5.5.0.update02-2068190.x86_64.iso" on a HP Proliant DL 320e G8, which fails to see the hardware raid that is setup. I used the HP raid utility to setup Raid 1 with 2-500GB HDDs. When I run the installer it asks which hard drive, of 2, do I want to install on.20150114_100215.jpeg

You will probably need to install the HP custom ISO which includes the driver for the raid controller.
