Does VMWare ESXI 4.1 work with SATA hard drives?

http://serverfault.com – I'm confused about the hard drive requirements to use VMWare ESXI 4.1 I conducted an experiment on an old desktop PC with a SATA hard drive and it couldn't find it. I'm now ready to go to production but I'm unsure whether a SATA hard drive will be ok. If not should I use a SSD. Note: I'm not using RAID (HowTos)
