Post Asus P7P55 LX board working under ESX41 U1
Hi Folks,

Installing ESX4i version 4.0.0 in not possible on this MB.
After downloading new ISO VMware-VMvisor-Installer-4.0.0.Update01-208167.x86_64.iso it is possible to install ESX4i on this MB.

Note:
Onboard Realtec RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit lan found but not working ?
Ethernet Controller Class 200: 10EC:8168

Only 1 CPU active ( i5/750 is a Quad Core )
error messages
vtd failed -> failed to load iommu driver
TSC: 24937080 CPU0:0 SMP : 498
Invalid HT config ( num HT 16, num PCPUS 4 )
0:00:00:38.314 CPU0;4912) mod 2971: Initialisation for vtd failed with -1.

question:
Is there a solution for the CPU problem ?

cheers,
Jan

Many thanks to Dave.
i5 does not support Directed I/O
If this seting is disabled in BIOS then ESX4i installation is OK without eror messages.
