On the Intel side VT-d in strictly a chipset feature so the CPU doesn't matter. I would assume the same with AMD so it will depend on the chipset used for the MB.

I have tried everything and I cannot make it work the really strange thing is the mother is using the right firmware and chip-set but esxi still will not see it.

Have you tried Xenserver or another hypervisor that would support passthrough?

Does it definitely support IOMMU? Im sure Ive read it doesnt -

http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?boa ... uage=en-us

But... The AMD 890FX Chipset is supposed to have a IOMMU so its mixed messages. Where abouts are you "supposed" to enable/turn it on?

Thanks

I contacted Asus and they confirmed that the motherboard is able to support but they could not tell me how to turn it on.

Who could provide either the customized ESXi 4.1 CD, or the oem.tgz to add the realtek card support in ESXi 4.1 ?

The other issue I have with this MOBO. My Intel PRO/1000 MT PCI Card is not detected !

Any idea, suggestion ?
