    ESXi 7.0 installer not detecting LSI 9240-8i RAID controller

      Hi All

      According to the ESXi 7.0 hardware compatibility list, the LSI 9240-8i RAID controller is supported natively.

       

      However, when installing with the standard ESXi 7.0 ISO, the installer fails to detect the controller and reports unsupported hardware found.

       

      The server is a Lenovo TS140, with onboard SATA disabled.

       

      I am able to access the 9240's web bios to configure the virtual drives, etc.

       

      Windows 10 will install on the same box and detect the controller with no issues.

       

      Am I missing something obvious?
