Hi all,

Here's another whitebox setup for the list;

MSI MS 7519 Motherboard (http://eu.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=170&prod_no=1484)
Intel Core2 Quad Q8200 (@ 2.33Ghz)
4Gb Corsair DDRII Memory
Intel Pro M1000T NIC
2 x 500Gb SATA HDD (1 x Wester Digital SATA II, 1 x Samsung SATA I)

Didn't bother with the motherboard's integrated NIC having had little success with them on other ESXi homebrews previously.

Originally had problems getting this setup working. Installer would hang randomly every time I tried to run it, but in a different place every time. I updated the BIOS to latest version and reseated the RAM and all is now fine.

I have the issue where a PS2 keyboard doesn't work in the ESXi basic interface.
