No Hard Drives Error when installing VMware ESX 3.5 on Proliant DL380 G6

Could someone explain what to do if I'm seeing no hard drives were found error when installing ESX 3.5 (even though I have created 2 logical drives from both the Rom Configuration for Arrays and Smart Start CD which does not list out any ESX OS at all; 1 logical drive is RAID 0 and the other one is RAID 5)? None of them showed up when installing ESX 3.5. Please see attachments. The system has 6 SAS hard drives. What am I missing here?

hi!

What happens when you try to select a device driver for your RAID controller?

Check vmware HCL for lead on wich driver to use
