Post Asus P5K-E/WIFI-AP: drivers needed?
Hi everyone, first post for me!
After some training with hosted virtualization (like virtual box or vmware professional), I decided to move on ESXi.
Not so simple, as I found out.

While installing ESXi on Dell poweredge servers is as simple as clicking two buttons, installing ESXi on Asus P5K-E/WIFI-AP seems to be hard enough to crack my head on the wall..... :)

Reading around, I made some tries, and the only way I got to install successfully ESXi on a USB stick is to install an Intel PRO1000 PCI card.
I tried ESXi 5.0, but it's too young and there's no drivers around.
So I came back to 4.1 and I found this thread where another guy tried the same and no luck.
I also tried the oem.tgz method using the package found here and again no luck.

AFAIK there's a chance using the CLI (Command Line Interface) to install drivers. I understand that I have to put the server in maintenance mode, but where can I find the correct drivers?

Any suggestion?

Thank you!
