Post Gigabyte EP45-UD3P
Another working Intel based mainboard (not listed at present as far as I could see). Also, a working PCI-e SAS raid adapter.

    Gigabyte EP45-UD3P - P45 chipset, Bios revision F7
    Sun STK INT Raid - SUN re-badged Adaptec 5805 8 port 2x mini-sas

Currently I can see that both the on-board SATA controllers (ICH10) are detected and the board itself is recognised correctly by ESX4i. Running a Core2 Duo @ 2.13ghz.

Dual Onboard NICs are not recognised as are realtek based, so fitted an Intel Pro/1000 MT.

It's also useful to note this board sports a (second) x8 PCI-e slot, which is PCIe 2.0 compliant. I currently have the SAS raid controller in that port and it works well (might be handy for those looking for a mainstream ESX4i rig that'll run an x8 based PCI-e adapter - be nice if the NICs worked though).

Since the onboard realtek NIC is not supported, shouldn't this MB be listed in yellow instead of green? I just purchased this MB b/c I thought it would work out of the box & now I have to use a workaround or buy an additional NIC. Just sayin..
