Hello, sbabcock.

 

From Lenovo Press,  4Y37A09739 ThinkSystem M.2 SATA 2-Bay RAID Enablement Kit use Marvell 88SE9230 SATA RAID Controller.

And 4Y37A09750 ThinkSystem M.2 NVMe 2-Bay RAID Enablement Kit use Marvell 88NR2241 NVMe RAID Controller. Either One of two adapter may be your referred controller.

From Lenovo VMWare I/O Drivers and firmware code recipe for SR665, both adapter show  using ESXi7.0 native driver. And you can jump to VMware HCL page from below link.

Hello Steve,

 

No driver is released from Lenovo for onboard Marvell 88SE9230 SATA RAID Controller, but ESXi7 has inbox driver for this controller so it should work without installing the driver separately I guess. 

 

VMware Compatibility Guide - 88SE9230 PCIe SATA 6Gb/s Controller

Thank you,
