Re: Giga-byte GA-G33M-DS2R
This is old but any chance you can share some additional information about what version of ESXi you got installed, what the BIOS settings were for onboard IDE, SATA RAID/AHCI or disabled and whether the SATA 0-3 Ports were in normal mode?
I've got the same board and I can't get 4.1 installed. I've spent the evening going through various BIOS options, disabled the onboard audio, 1394 and NIC, added 2 Intel NICs but it fails loading the vmfs3 module. More information can be found here http://communities.vmware.com/message/1835439
Tomorrow I'll try pulling out the two NICs and removing any other excess hardware, which isn't much to be honest, then trying 4.0.
3.5i works like a champ, but I need 4.x.
