How about the hard drive? How did you hook up? Using the on board SATA port?

I use a SATA Drive with 1TB at the internal controller.

I got a similar bord, got ESX 4.1 installed on the IDE but what drivers did you use for the SATA interface to use as DataStores?

-----8<--------8<--------8<--------8<--------8<--------8<--------8<---
/usr/sbin/dmidecode -q > hardware.txt

Port Connector Information
Internal Reference Designator: SATA4
Internal Connector Type: <OUT OF SPEC>
External Reference Designator: Not Specified
External Connector Type: None
Port Type: <OUT OF SPEC>

Turns out the community Community Unified oem.tgz v1.1.0 did the trick: http://www.vm-help.com/esx/esx3i/customize_oem_tgz.php

How did you did it?

I have a P5G41-M LE, and I just can't boot ESXi 4.1 Update CD. It stops with this error:

Booting: MBI=0x00010108 entry=0x00400256

Any idea?

Finally got it to work.... and completely! I was having two problems: memory recognized at 800MHz, but only working correctly at 667MHz, and ethernet built-in not supported directly. Got the driver from viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1876&p=5389#p5389, and followed instructions from http://engwar.com/post/392 to add the support to my installation CD.

So here's the description that can be added to supported hardware list:

MotherBoard: P5G41-M LE
CPU: Intel Core2Quad Q8400 @ 2.66GHz
RAM: 2*4GB DDR2-667
DVD-RW: LG PATA
NIC1: Atheros / Attansic atl1e Ethernet Adapter [1969:1026] (built-in)
NIC2: Intel Pro 1000/GT
BIOS: default values
