Hi!
I used this package with Varazir script and I made another installation CD.
I changed the Marvel ID to 11ab:4364.
Works like a charm.

Vmware ESXi 4.1 on Asus P5K Premium + Core2Quad Q8300 + 8Gb RAM + 2 Sata Disks.

Thanks very much for your work.

Take a look at the guide here on compiling a driver - http://www.kernelcrash.com/blog/using-a ... 009/08/22/

Dear danisoto,

I'm trying to get my P-SATA-Contoller Marvell 88SE6121 on my ASUS P5Q Premium to work with ESXi 4.1. I've downloaded your mymod-network.new2.tgz and created a modified oem.tgz out of that.

Here's what I've exactly done:

1. Downloaded VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) - ESXi 4.1 Installable (CD ISO) - 2010-07-13 - Build 260247

2. Added the following line to original simple.map: 11ab:6121 0000:0000 storage pata_marvell.o

3. Created oem.tgz with modded simple.map and your pata_marvell.o (from this topic)



I don't get it running. It tells me with two red lines that the module was loaded, but I only see the DVD-ROM connected to the SATA-Controller.

Are you able to tell me what I can do to achieve my aim?

Thank you very much.

If you access the console of the host (ALT+F1) and run lspci -p is a module listed for the storage controller?

Hi Dave.Mishchenko,

sorry, I forgot to post the output of lspci.

Here it comes:

000:004:00.0 11ab:6121 1043:8212 10/ 10/0x68 A V


I tried simple.map with "11ab:6121 1043:8212" and with "11ab:6121 0000:0000", but that makes no difference. I've never seen a module in that line.

Thank you very much.

You can try to manually load a drive with vmkload_mod. If that doesn't help then you'll need a new driver.

Hi Dave.Mishchenko,

Can you help me with finding a new driver? Maybe you could help me compiling a fitting driver for me on my own.

Tahnk you.

This will give you a idea of what is required to compile a driver - http://www.kernelcrash.com/blog/using-a ... 009/08/22/.
