Post ASUS P5N-D w/ E6300
-ASUS P5N-D Socket 775 mobo- BIOS 1001
-Used Core 2 Duo E6300 (1.86GHz)

-Both onboard SATA and NIC are working out of the box, no modification to setup needed.
-SATA Controller is MCP51 Serial ATA Controller - uses sata_nv.o
-NIC Controller is nVidia NForce Network Controller - uses forcedeth.o
(both included with ESXi 4.0)

-supports Intel VT. I do not have it updated, but there is a newer BIOS update (1204) that claims to "Fix VT function that may stop functioning after the system resumes from S3.". Should probably be updated

-I used a USB Flash Drive to install ESXi, and the BIOS treats it like a HDD, and is listed as a HDD under the boot order.

-I am unsure if RAID functionality works, as I do not have spare clean drives to try it out with...

Im bringing up two ESX 4.0.x machines on this motherboard with Q9300 processors. The on-board NIC works with the Realtek patch applied (using the RTL-8168 AND RTL-8169 patches as I need additional NICS). Two Hitachi 2TB drives adn 4GB RAM (for the moment)

Just got the Hypervisor installed and looks good thus far.

Does anyone know, if the onboard RAID Controller works with ESXi 4.1.0? I try to build a RAID1 with 2x2TB and use it as datastore in ESXi 4.1.0 but i can't see the RAID Volume just the disk self (the raid member disks but not the RAID volume)

Thanks for help

Cheers
