ESXi 5.0 working on ASUS P6X58D Premium with Marvell 88E8056
Have been trying forever to get ESXi 5.0 working on my system:
- ASUS P6X58D Premium MoBo
- OnBoard Marvell Yukon 88E8056 NIC
Unlike ESXi 4.0 the only snag was with the NIC.
Got it working with the use of this excellent forum!
Here's what I did:1:
Downloaded ESXi 5.0 (obviously)2:
Downloaded ESXi Customizer: http://v-front.blogspot.com/p/esxi-customizer.html3:
Downloaded the appropiate driver from Peetz (epic lifesaver!) in this post: http://www.vm-help.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=3558&p=13787#p137874:
Used tgz2vib5.cmd from the ESXi Customiser to generate an ISO image containing the new drivers.5:
Burned the ISO to CD
Booted, installed, worked like a charm!
