An other whitebox that is working with the onboard SATA (AHCI).

Booting from USB stick (1 GB) with modified oem.tgz for the AHCI


added the following to pci.ids:
022 Advanced Micro Devices [AMD]
1100 K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] HyperTransport Technology Configuration
1101 K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] Address MapK8 NorthBridge
1102 K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] DRAM Controller
1103 K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] Miscellaneous Control
1200 AHCI10-SATA1
1201 AHCI10-SATA2
1202 AHCI10-SATA3
1203 AHCI10-SATA4
1204 AHCI10-eSATA5

and the following to simple.map
1022:1200 0000:0000 storage ahci
1022:1201 0000:0000 storage ahci
1022:1202 0000:0000 storage ahci
1022:1203 0000:0000 storage ahci
1022:1204 0000:0000 storage ahci

saved the modified oem.tgz (with the help of OpenSuse11) to the ESX3i USB boot stick.


Boots and I see " unknown" storage adapters:
vmhba33, vmhba34, vmhba35, vmhba36, vmhba37, vmhba38
I can creatd VMFS volumes and store data on it. I have not tried any RAID setup, just 2 single SATA disks.
As axtra storage I use iSCSI (Openfiler v2.3 on x86 IDE disks and intel Pro/1000GT) and the ESXi iSCSI configuration. Both attached to a Gb network.
