Hello,

do you have smart array in your server? VMware ESX doesn't like sata controllers...

Try to use HP customized ESXi images for ProLiant
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/software/vmware/esxi-image.html

This problem occurred may be because you have Dynamic Smart Array B120i
But with HP image it should be work.
