Just a quick one for you guys.

MB - Gigabyte 970a-d3
Bios was shipped with from the factory (F3)
CPU - Sempron 140 with the 2nd core unlocked via the MB (Yes i know i cant run alot on that CPU....Waiting for Bulldozer)
RAM - 14GB 4/4/4/2 GB Gskill 1300 DDR3
Intel Network Card (EXPI9301CTBLK) Running on a 1gb network
36GB WD Raptor (install HDD)
500GB Samsung HDD (Datastore)

Issues: Installed 4.1 with no customisation. Was installed with ACHI Enabled and realtek onboard ethernet disabled.

I wasnt able to install esxi onto a usb key and boot from it. The key's that i tried could be seen by the installer but not as a boot up device

Now to convert some machines from vm server to esxi and play.
