    It only sees the drives as individual units which sort of defeats the object.
    What do you mean by RAID mode?
    is it a "software" raid?

    That's what ESXi see's it as, but if I use a P400 add in card it's fine.
    So I guess the answer is yes.

    I would add however it works fine with Hyper-V.

    Just got that information from a comment on this website

    HP Proliant ML110 G6 Released – Still a worthy virtualization work or home lab server? | TechHead.co.uk

    from one of the readers called Jose, they said

    The Local Controller will work with ESX(i)4.0 by going into the BIOS and changing SATA MODE SELECTION from Compatible to RAID.

    Pretty certain that I had tried that, Hyper-v insisted on it for the raid to work and if enabled Hyper-v will prompt you for the raid drivers.
    In the end I went with Hyper-V anyway but used 2k8R2Std installed the full server and GUI with Hyper-v roles.
