VMWARE: "nvme disks are not supported by other linux 2.6x kernel 64-bit"



So I'm setting up physical disks in vmware Workstation pro and realized NVMe is not available. I was hoping to use the NVMe for read/write cache... Should I have chosen a different "base" OS when setting things up?  I hope I didn't just waist 200$ on VM workstation pro......


Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Just in case someone else stumbles upon this issue:


I used 3.0 instead.  That worked.


No wonders it didn't work. No current model used in XPEnology is below linux kernel v3.

DSM 6.1 linux kernel for the 3 architectures (bromolow (3615xs), broadwell (3617xs) and braswell (916+)) are all v.3.10.102
