Windows can deal with this through its bootloader process and I imagine VMWare could as well but they never will because as others have pointed out, ICHR RAID isn’t “pro grade” due to its lack of a dedicated parity processor ICHR uses your x86 CPU which actually does an outstanding job when setup right and the inherent dangers in that such as the fact that your CPU is a general purpose processor doing many other things making it FAR more prone to crashing than a dedicated parity processor. This should be able to let you know if a disk has failed via a popup and email. Intel does not warrant or assume responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of any information, text, graphics, links or other items contained within the Software. The PCI id is: In the end ICHR is a value-added solution for people who don’t need 6 9’s I hate to state the obvious, but you’re wasting a lot of time and effort on a system that will never be supportable or substantially reliable.

However when I booted the system back up it appeared as though the integrity of the RAID5 degraded after adding each drive separately probably because it had to load up a VMFS onto each drive thereby breaking the array.
Like I said in the original post it was shown in the compatability list see below so no thats not the issue. If you do not wish to so agree, do esxk install or use the Software. Right off the bat, you need to check whether the hardware is on the Hardware compatibility list for ESXi.

I’m also dealing with a similar issue and my server is on the compatability list. Please submit your comments, questions, or suggestions here. RobinGill You’ll find on careful inspection that I wrote several messages in that thread look for the guy peeing on Microsoft. Install VMware vSphere Hypervisor.
When you have been able to Discover the Host, you should be able to login. When I boot the ESXi 5. For instance Virtualbox running on Ubuntu Server would work.
Thank you for your feedback!

Our goal is to make Download Center a valuable resource for you. Isolating guests from the eszi hardware is half the point of virtualization. This Software is licensed for use only in conjunction with Intel component products. Post as a guest Name.
Even if you do get ti working, there is no guarantee on stability. I accept the terms in the license agreement.
I have found one article at http: Guests will only see their virtual disks. Add to pool Remove from pool. OK, the previous answers have talked about why it’s a bad idea to use fakeraid, why VMware doesn’t support it, and to some extent why using a desktop motherboard isn’t such a good idea. You may copy the Software onto a single computer for your personal, noncommercial use, and you may make one back-up copy of the Software, subject to these conditions: As an alternative, you could always get the Xen server for citrix.
It is recommended that you attempt this installation on a laboratory or test system before deploying this into a production live system or environment.
