Post Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H / i5 4570
Hello all !
This is just a tiny test ( i.e. boot ) regarding ESXi 5.5 and Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H board.

The setup :
Motherboard : GA-H87-D3H ( BIOS F6, socket 1150 )
CPU : Intel i5 4570 ( Haswell )
LAN : Intel I-217V ( on board )
RAM : 4 GB ( DDR3/1333, just for test )

The original .iso was patched to include drivers for Intel card I-217V ( use ESXi customizer v2.7.2 to add net-e1000e-2.3.2.x86_64.vib ).

This PC was booted from a(n) 8 GB USB stick. This stick was "prepared" in a virtual environment ( VMware Workstation ).

No other tests will be done in the near future ... :(

Best regards,
Cosmix

Hey Mate
I'm trying to install the same Motherboard with esxi 5.5, but I can't get it to recognise the NIC. I've added the file to the ISO but it still will not find the NIC. Could you give me a step by step rundown of what I have to do? I'd be forever gratefull!

Hello !
I have added a 7-zip-ed wordpad document describing a how-to procedure for creating a new .iso containing the new drivers.

Check your BIOS ( version, default settings ), RAM, network device ( using Windows, Linux ).

Let me know if the procedure worked out.
You can even try it for the new release of the hypervisor ( 5.5.0U1 )

Best regards,
Cosmix
