Now March 2, 2009 all works fine.
I used U2 version and not the U3 version and that did the track, all running fine !!! Now the next goal is to goto Ux version of upgrades.
Thanks to all for the help !!!!
The Installation of VMware ESXi is done from an USB stick also I have used the build in SATA CD-ROM drive.
When removing the LSI and the Intel cards same error, any help is welcome.
Also I have looked at the following forums:
VMware EXSi (Hardware Compatibility List) HCL
Unofficial VMware ESX Server Whitebox HCL and
ESXi: VMware ESX Server 3i U3 Version 3.5 Update 3 - 123629 - 11/06/08
first, look in installation logs.
in esx it is in /root/install.log but I am on my phone. check the esxi install guide. report any funny errors in the log
next search my blog for usb boot, I successfully have booted esxi from a usb drive. that will tell us if it is a controller problem. this works on most motherboards.
