Post ASUS P7H55-M Pro
Here is my working spec for an ASUS P7H55-M Pro

Socket 1156-based board with Intel H55 chipset
Intel i5 750 - onboard graphics do not work with this cpu. I chose the 750 as it is a true Quad Core. 6xx series will support onboard grpahics but are dual core plus HyperThreading.
Nvidia-based graphics card - FX550 i think
Intel Pro 1000 GT adapter
Onboard NIC does not work out of the box -Realteak 8139
Onboard SATA works fine in AHCI mode
BIOS Version 0601
Memory Corsair XMS3 (CMX8GX3M4A1333C9)
Dual Seagate 600 GB SATA-2 drives
CoolerMaster Elite 310 case
Corsair 550W Power Supply

Work flawlessly. Very fast and stable. I had 5 VMS running - 3 64-bit and two 32-bit all doing updates.

ESXI installed with no issues with the Intel NIC installed.

This was a very inexpensive motherboard with just the barebones features I needed. Very much recommended.

Resurrection of an old thread....

I have the same board and am finding that the onboard SATA does not work - lspci shows the controller as vmhba0, but fdisk -l doesn't show the drives. Tried both the firmware revision listed in the post, and also the latest and greatest (1604). Only other difference of any significance is that OP has a Core i5 and I have a Core i3... Any ideas here would be appreciated.

What's the PCI id of the controller and have you confirmed the mode that it is in?

Does lspci -p show a module for the controller?

Hi everyone,
I'm new to this forum, and i have this exact Motherboard.
I have being testing and testing freenas and openfiler, with ESXi4.1 U1
with RDM (method from the console to create VMDK file)
and with passing throught the intel H55 SATA controler.

Still the same issue, disks are detected everything is fine..
but i have a bandwidth of max 300Kb/s ...

i'm begining to suspect the onboard sata controler,
does anybody have some trouble like this ?
