write error: Input/output error on SSD

Hi all,

  I just installed ESXi 7.0 U3 on my Supermicro H8SGL motherboard and it works pretty well with spinning disks, but not with a Samsung SSD of 256 GB. All HDD are attached to the motherboard SATA controller and under Debian they work fine.

I'm wondering if there is a way to disable SSD, but for attached storage I was not able to find the right procedure.
