Post ASUS Sabertooth X58
- ASUS Sabertooth X58
- Chipset North X58
- Chipset South ICH10R
- LGA 1366 Intel i7 950
- BIOS 0505
- RAM 12GB Kingston KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX RT

The onboard NIC does not work. I added an Intel EXPI9301CTBLK.

The motherboard has a number of RAID modes, but I have a single SATA drive selected instead. A Seagate 7200.12 1TB drive. Enabled AHCI mode instead of IDE.

Turned on Intel VT in the BIOS. It is disabled by default.

So the only BIOS changes I made were setting it to AHCI and turning on Intel VT. All other BIOS settings are default.

Because the processor is an i7, it does support vt-d.

ESXi 4.1 loaded right up and installed fine. Detected everything and after configuring the management network, was ready to go.

Are you using a SATA II drive or SATA III? I have basically the same build but can't get ESX to see/recognize the SATA III drive.

I've set both the Standard SATA Channels to AHCI as well as the Marvell Controller.

Thanks in advance..
