Post Q6600/Intel DP35DP + X2 3800+/GA-M61PM-S2
Hey everyone, new poster :)

I've just started with vmware with a couple of *old* boxes.

Box 1
Intel Q6600
Intel DP35DP Motherboard
Intel NIC
6GB Ram
1x 2GB DDR800
1x 2GB DDR667
2x 1GB DDR667

Box 2
AMD X2 3800+ (AM2)
Gigabyte GA-M61PM-S2 Motherboard
MCP61 NIC
4GB Ram
4x 1GB DDR667

With the NIC on Box2, I had to modify the install media to enable the forcedeth driver to pick up the MCP61 NIC.
I also had to update the BIOS to F8 to even have a virtualisation option in the BIOS, however ESXi5 installer still didn't pick up on the virtualisation capability but let me install anyway.

About to start buliding VMs on these 2 boxes now

** Added a 3rd box and swapped in another box for the 2nd box **
2nd Box -
Intel DG965SS Motherboard
4x 1GB of DDR667 RAM
Core 2 Duo 6400 @ 2.13ghz

3rd Box
HP DC7000 SFF
Core 2 Duo 6400 @ 2.13ghz
4x 1GB of DDR667 RAM

And my Q6600 box has died...
Not booting, Not even POSTING now :(

** Update **
Q6600 box is working now. Turns out that 2 of the memory slots on the motherboard have died though, so on the lookout for a new LGA775 motherboard now :(
