Hi,
ESXi 4.1 installed without any customization on following hardware:

- Asus M2N-E SLI
- NVIDIA nForce® 500 SLI™ MCP
- AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ (socket AM2)
- using latest BIOS (M2N-E-SLI 1301 BIOS)
- integrated NIC (nvidia) and onboard HDD controller working
- didin't test RAID

Customized:
- added one Realtek Gbit PCI NIC (used oem.tgz for Realtek 8169)

Please note that I initially installed ESXi 4.0 then upgraded to version 4.1 using VMWare vSphere CLI. Upgrade to ver. 4.1u1 was not successful because system hangs on boot after loading module HID. Ver. 4.1 works without any problems for 7+ days now.

Did the Nvidia NIC work without custom drivers?
