ESXI 6.5U1 can't see Sata HDD via onboard ATI SB700 sata controller

Hello,

I have ESXI 6.5U1 installed on lsi9260 controller win 1.8Tb RAID10

And additional SATA HDD connected то motherboard  sata port on ASUS M5A99FX ProR2.0 (SB700 Ati controller)

Lsi9260 work fine, but I can't  see SATA HDD

Only "vmhba2 Megaraid SAS gen2 controller" in Storage -> Adapters section (web console)

No other adapters.

No sata disk in

ls -l /vmfs/devices/disks

But I see AHCI controller via lspci

lspci -v | grep "Class 0106" -B 1

0000:00:11.0 SATA controller Mass storage controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB700 SATA Controller [AHCI Mode] [vmhba0]

         Class 0106: 1002:4391

0000:06:00.0 SATA controller Mass storage controller: ASMedia Technology Inc. ASM1062 Serial ATA Controller [vmhba1]

         Class 0106: 1b21:0612

vmw_ahci enabled and running

esxcli system module list | grep vmw_ahci

vmw_ahci                            true        true

With ESXI 6.0 this configuration works fine and I see SATA disk!

Please help me to connect this disk

Thank you!
