    S1200BTL server motherboard and vmware esxi 5.1 raid



      I have Intel R1304BTLSHBN server with windows 2008 server istalled on two sata drives with raid 1 which i need to virtualize.

      ESXi 5.1 does not support onboard raid controller, because i can only see two sata drives during installation process.

      How can i install it on raid 1? The only drivers i could find for my motherboard was SAS Hardware RAID Driver for ESXi 5.


      Do i need to buy additional raid controller that is compatible with esxi 5.1?


      Thanks in advance!
