Post 'binmod.tgz' in ESXi 4.0?
What happend to the binmod.tgz file on partition 1 on de .dd image? Seems like it is replaced by 'sys.vgz', which contains 'vmvisor-sys.tar.vtar'. However I cannot unpack this file in windows (tried with 7zip and winrar, 7zip does nothing while winrar says the archive is corrupt and show the (partial) contents)). I wanted to take a look in the 'simple.map' file and the included drivers in 'mod'.

With FTK imager I can open the 'vmvisor-sys.tar.vtar' file, however it seems to show only a lot of symbolic link files, not the full data? The 'vmvisor-sys.tar.vtar' is about 131 MB big, so there must be more in it.

Anybody got a clue?

I've attached simple.map and pci.ids in a zip. Note that pci.ids is now located in /etc/vmware.

You wouldn't be able to use the drivers from ESXi. What hardware do you need support for?

You won't need to ATI reference in simple.map as it is in the default now - http://www.vm-help.com/esx40i/Hardware_support.php. But the problem will be the realtek nic and lack of ESXi 4.0 driver. Do you have an Intel Pro1000 / Broadcom 57xx NICs around?
