ESX cannot detect LSI 1068 RAID controller

Hi.

I need to install ESX version 3.02, the one available for evaluation. We use an Intel board S5000PAL with LSI RAID controller (1068 or 1064e)

I tried using the: "Driver CD for megaraid_sas version 3.0.9

This is an ESX Server 3.0.1 Driver CD that enables support for LSI 1078 controller with version 3.0.9 of the megaraid_sas driver.

Driver CD for megaraid_sas version 3.0.9 for ESX 3.0.1" available on:

http://www.vmware.com/download/vi/drivers_tools.html

with no success, the drivers would not load.

Any insights?

Thanks in advance,

Henri.

Do you have the RAID activation key and the RAID memory?
