Post My First ESXI Whitebox
Hey All!

I managed to get my first whitebox together without too much trouble...

Motherboard - ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB3 - 104.99
Processor - AMD X2 555 Black Edition - 89.99
RAM - 8GB Corsair 1333 DDR3 Memory (2x4 Sticks) 45.99 Each
Hard Drive - Seagate 500gb Hard drive 39.99
Case - Thermaltake Case 39.99

Pretty cheap for my first whitebox. Part of me wishes i wouldve swung for the fences on the processor and ram - but ill work my way up.

I am using the built in NIC on the motherboard. It took me a bit of tinkering with to get it to work but finally i learned on this site how to inject the driver into the ESXI install. Once inside VMs on the machine however i had no external internet access. I changed the network adapter to VXMNET3 and it picked back up. Yay!

Time to play now haha....

One solution is to add a NIC like an Intel Pro 1000. Or you might find a driver here - http://www.vm-help.com/esx40i/customize_oem_tgz.php.
