no harddrive was detected. check if your kernel has a built in ide driver (CONFIG_ATA_PIIX for vmware iirc)

When booting the livecd, run "lspci -k" to find out which is the correct SATA driver. This must be enabled built-in (not a module) in your kernel. The same applies for your root filesystem.

The VMware SATA controller is not listed there, probably it scrolled out of view.
Please use wgetpaste or similar to give us the output of the commands.

turnhama270,

Code:
00:10.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI (rev 01)
        Subsystem: VMware LSI Logic Parallel SCSI Controller
        Kernel driver in use: mptspi
        Kernel modules: mptspi

In make menuconfig, press / and enter mptspi

Its a real SCSI device so it will be in SCSI low level drivers somewhere.

turnhama270,

The name has changed. Its Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for SPI (FUSION_SPI)
Under Fusion MPT device support.

The help there lists LSI53C1030 as a supported device, which matches your LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030
