Can I install ESXi update 3 in IBM DS3400?

Helo,

I want to install ESXi 3.5 update3 in IBM HS21 Blade(8853-C2U) but the blade does not have internal disk.

I need install in SAN IBM DS3400. The blade have QLOGIC QMC2462s connect to DS3400.

When I boot with ESXi , return an error that does not have disk where install.

Can I install ESXi in DS3400??

Thank you very much.

ESXi is not supported for use in a boot from SAN environment -

Duncan over at Yellow-Bricks has a great guide on getting ESXi to boot from a USB key. Thats probably your only opton, short of buy some disks -
