Post Intel 82578DC 8086:10f0 (on Intel motherboard DH55TC)
After a month of trial and error, finally got this oem.tgz working for the onboard NIC of Intel DH55TC. The pci id for the NIC is 8086:10f0. The driver is based on 1.1.2, obtained from http://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/

I think it should also work for other recent intel network adapters, such as the 82578DM, by modifying the pci.ids and simple.map.

Thanks for the help from this forum, and the following links:

I haven't tested this driver extensively, but during my initial tests (on esxi 4u1), it did work. :P

Hi hardworker,

How can I install ESXi4 by making use of this file? The installation CD just can't continue when it can't find the network port 82578DM in my Zotac H55-ITX motherboard.

I have tried to install this driver too on a ESXi3.5 installation, but the log gives some errors related to "symbol not found".

Please kindly help, thanks.

See the script by Varazir at the top of this forum for a script that can customize an install image with a new oem.tgz file.

The vmkernel went from 32 to 64 bit between ESXi 3.5 to 4 so drivers compiled for one won't work with the other.

Hardworker you are a legend!

Downloaded the oem file, changed the simple.map and pc.ids files to match my card:
8086:10ef 0000:0000 network e1000e2.o
and:
10ef 82578DM Gigabit Network Connection

the installer runs like a dream!

Thank you very very very much for doing this!.

Yes I read, I ty it again. has any place with the instruction to do that widhout a Script, Step By Step. I Want to make a image width Realtek 8169 to.
I plan to instal a Box width this DH55TC and a Realtek 8169 I alread download the "EXSi 4.0 Update 1" and "ESXi 4.1", width ESXi 4.1 stop right after Press "F11" width error abaou a file not found, and width a Esxi 4.0 they stop width the message that no Nic was Found.

In the to cases I dont mess with de ISO. after that I try to add de oem.tgz but I dont have sucess. If you have any oder link to instruct about that without script I apreciate.
:?
