Post Gigabyte ga-x58a-ud3r VT-d (VMDirectPath) question
Anybody test this mobo: Gigabyte ga-x58a-ud3r with ESXi VMDirectPath or XEN VT-d Pass-Through? Could you tell me if i buy this motherboard with i7-920 i will be able to install ESXi 4.0 and use vt-d (VMDirectPath)? I know that x58 chipset supports vt-d but sometimes it doesn't work (source: http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/VTdHowTo)

Thank you for replies

Sorry for my bad English

Did you ever find out if the MB would work with VMDirectPath?

I to would love to get a more definitive answer on the issue.

I've seen a few posts about it, but the impression is mixed as some say 'VT works' and others cannot even get that far in the process to confirm / deny if vt-d works.

4 PCIe slots is a rather nice feature, especially if VMdirectpath can work.

I have this board for my Windows 7 PC.

I tried installing esxi but it failed. This is my home PC so I didnt spend much time troubleshooting. Did you get ESXi to install?

PSS the BIOS Vt-d option is locked/not viewable so I don't think its supported.
