Post Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 rev:2.0

ESX 4.1 installed.
Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 rev:2.0
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Corsair DDR3 1333Mhz 2X4Gb XMS3
Intel PWLA 8391 GT
HP SmartArray P410 256M

Onboard LAN does not work, you can also forget onboard RAID. ONboard IDE works.
Intel LAN works perfect, with several virtal machines.
HP SmartArray controler works fine. I only need to test managment of this controler.
I will built email server and voip server (all one one computer) virtualized, to test some behaviour regarding I/O performance.

Hi Nitrox,

Please check the previous posts about this MB if you want to have internal LAN cards working with ESXi 4.1. There you will find attached the working drivers for the integrated LAN adapter. I am using the both card with no problems. Working perfect. Also I would like to share that I/O for HDD with Seagate SATA 3 Baracuda XT is more than perfect for ESXi for me.

Iv got this exact same board and am having some issues with memory, iv got 8gb of OCZ DDR3, but when i add more than 4GB some very odd stuff starts happening, can you confirm how things ended up with this box ?

RAM type ? exact version
BIOS Version ?
ESXi installation disk ? (SATA, IDE, RAID, ETC)

sorry for bugging ya, but this is starting to drive me a little nutty !
