The first step was to configure the RAID on RAID 1 level, then the ESXi iso had to be installed on the Harddrive. The problem was, that the standard iso of VMWare vShpere Hypervisor does not include the required drivers for the RAID controller, and because the controller was fresh on the market, there was no custom iso available for this controller at that point of time.

The solution was to download the missing drivers for the RAID controller and insert them in the iso provided by VMWare.
Today, this solution is dispensable because VMWare provides custom images for most controllers on their website.
