Q10051202 - For VMWare ESXI 5.0, the installation was easy, the arcmsr driver is loading but does not find any device on SuperMicro X9SCL+-F.


The problem was related to the motherboard (Supermicro X9SCL and X9SCM series).
The latest motherboard BIOS (1.1a) has an incompatibility problem with ESXI 5 when using PCI-E slot 1 (slot closer to the CPU).  There were two proposed ways to solve the problem:
1) Revert to bios version 1.0d and use any PCI-E slot OR
2) Use PCI-E slot 4 with bios version 1.1a.
