MSI P45-D8 board
8G ram
onboard realtek 8168
pci realtek 8169
2 x 1TB seagate sata

customised the oem.tgz with realtek 8168 and 8169 driver

install with no issue

create VM and uploading ISO

everything works fine except sometime the NIC will stop working while i am transfering ISO (big files)

Now i have seperate the 2 NIC to be 1 management and 1 vm switch.

Will report back later if that fix the issue.

Update:
onboard NIC is definitely an issue.

Intel P45 Chipset with no BIOS support to enable Intel VT-d so no Direct I/O

Thanks for posting your specs. Have you tried alternating which NIC is part of the management vSwitch? Seems that you have the same problem as here - viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1546.

going to sell the board and change to a GA-EQ45M-S2, with Intel Q45 Chipset supposely it should full support Intel VT-d.
