Microserver Gen8, Not work with HGST Deskstar NAS 6TB hard drive under ESXi

I never succeeded to append the HGST Deskstar NAS 6TB to my datastore under ESXi. It always hung up at the last step "Creating VMFS datastore", and never finished.  Is this a compatibility problem?

Any solution? Thanks.

The problem occured when the disk controller set to SATA mode.

Good News: when change the disk controller to Raid mode. It works, and the problem disappeared.
