reversing pci passthrough

Hello,

i accidently configured PCI passthrough of the devices of my ESXi machine to the virtual machines,

among these devices was the SATA disks which hosting the VMs, connected to the motherboard.

the cause of this action (to my understanding) made the controller passthrough the RAIDed 2 SATA disks to a virtual location,

which due to this passthroughing , no longer exist because the VMs are not accessible anymore 

and i cant reverse this configuration no matter what i do,

a picture of the current configuration is presented here:

Do you find the settings for that in

/etc/vmware/esx.conf ?

If editing the esxi.conf on a booted up ESXi does not take effect, look at the instructions of this thread
