Post Intel DG33BU - Update for ESX 4 U1
Motherboard: Intel DG33BU
CPU: Q6600
Memory: 4*2G
Nic: Onboard Intel 82566DC2
Nic: Intel Pro 1000 PT Desktop
Nic: Intel Pro 1000 GT Desktop

This system works with ESX 3.5 U4 except onboard nic, ESXi 4.0 works for this board. I then tried ESX 4.0, then as many others have experienced, PCIe nics having problems, disabling TSO fixed the nic issue. However, during reboot, it stucks at synchronizing SCSI cahe. This is a typical problem for many other Intel motherboards that worked with 3.5 u4.

Today, I reloaded it with ESX 4.0 U1, and everything works out of box. Both nic and SATA issues are fixed. I suggest anyone with same issues on Intel motherboard try U1 and see if the problems are fixed. I believe DG35EC was having the same problem but it should be fixed for that board as well.

Hi there. I just want to be clear on something. Are you saying the onboard NIC works with ESXi 4 U1?

Thanks.

I had the NIS disabled in the BIOS. The onboard NIC does indeed work.

HI,
for what it's worth - I can confirm both SATA and onboard NIC work well with ESXi 4.0 U1.
