Post MSI 870-G45 (including new atl1e driver)
My build, working well after some struggles.

MSI 870-G45 motherboard (AM3, SB700/800)
Phenom II X4 905e overclocked to 3.5GHz (2.5GHz stock) :mrgreen:
16GB DDR3

-ESXi 4.1 recognized the CPU, chipset, southbridge out of the box by default. SATA AHCI and PATA IDE both worked fine (ahci.o, pata_atiixp.o). :)
-Onboard NIC is 1969:1063 = Atheros AR8131, not recognized by default.
-BIOS has 'Secure Virtual Machine' option, no idea what this does but I have it enabled. :?:
-I think AMD-V and RVI are supported (those options appear in vSphere client).
-No idea about vt-d; I don't have anything else installed on the board to give access to.
-No idea about FT.

So the onboard NIC wasn't supported. I ported 1.0.1.14 of AR81x Family driver from Atheros' partner page. I found out the hard way :cry: that CONFIG_PM is not enabled in the kernel, so don't enable it when compiling / porting your drivers!

Supported devices should be (in theory):
1969:1026
1969:1062
1969:1063
1969:1066
1969:1067
1969:1073
1969:1083
1969:2060
1969:2062

I also tried porting the Tulip driver, but that failed (kept purple screening). Ended up ordering $15 Intel Pro 1000 from China off eBay.

Thanks for making this site! :D

Thanks for your driver!

I have an Asus P5G41T-M LX motherboard with an atheros AR8131 (1969:1063), and used your driver for my oem.tgz.

Working flawlessly until now, I am able to download VM machines with FastSCP with 12MB/s, on a 100mbit switch. :D

Add a new board to the whitebox specs. :P
