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

This post was originally published on this site

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?
