Post ESXi on ASUS P5K WS Motherboard

I am unable to install ESXi 4 revision 1 booting from installation CD on a ASUS P5K WS Motherboard as receive kernel exceptions.

This Motherboard has a Marvell RAID/IDE/Sata/Boot ROM Controller. The processor is a Core 2 Duo. There is a PCI NVIDIA Video Card attached.

I have attached a photo of the screen which shows kernel panic.

Having disabled motherboard components such as Video, Firewire, Serial, Marvell Controller - so that board should boot to attached PCI-E LSI SAS-9260-8i Controller. Can see on the whitebox that this is listed as requiring custom OEM.TGZ - ESXi should at least boot past this to begin with without receiving this kernel panic?

Anyone have any ideas how I could resolve this? It would be pretty annoying to have to replace motherboard.

Many thanks.
