 XFX GeForce8200 (XFX MI-A78S-8209)
XFX GeForce8200 (MCP78-series, I think, but definitely different from asus-based that timf contributed)
Athlon 64 X2 5000+ (2 x 2.6Ghz)
8GB Crucial RAM (4 x 2GB)
intel etherexpress dual pro/100 nic
500gb seagate sata hdd (qty 2)

attached the oem.tgz used (set bios to AHCI - usb key install / slax live cd and copy oem.tgz to hypervisor1 partition )

working swimmingly... only "minor" setback is that I can't get the onboard marvell yukon nic going... 11ab:4364 (11ab:00ab)

Thanks for posting this. Would you be able to tell me which PCI id you added?

Hi tecknik0,

I think you basically have the same chipset as on my ASUS board where the disk IO is concerned.

It seems that 0759 is an IDE controller, from what I can tell. If I disable the IDE interface in the BIOS, that doesn't show up for me, but the SATA drives are still recognized.

I had 0ad0, like you, but it seems that when I set SATA to AHCI in the BIOS, that changed to 0ad4.

Have you tried to get any IDE drives recocnized, or just SATA?

thanks,

Tim

I have an ASUS M3N78-VM mobo that likewise uses the GeForce 8200 chipset. I updated the oem.tgz with:

simple.map
10de:0759 0000:0000 storage ide
10de:0ad4 0000:0000 storage ahci

pci.ids
0759 MCP78 SATA Controller (IDE)
0ad4 MCP78 SATA Controller

With the BIOS set for AHCI mode, ESXi sees the HD connected to a SATA port but not the HD connected to the IDE (40-pin) port. Windows reports 0759 as the ID of the IDE controller.

Did you try to install to an IDE disk along the way, and if so, what were the results?
Thanks,
Scott

Hi Scott, so for your MB it works Ok to install to the SATA HD? When you say you can't see the IDE drive, is that in the VI client or with fdisk -l?

Hi Dave. Thanks for the quick reply and sorry for not being clearer.

I have not yet tried an install to the SATA HD because that's not the intended goal. fdisk -l does however report the SATA controller and disk, but not the IDE controller and disk. The VI client also reports the SATA controller/disk as a storage option but no the IDE controller/disk.

If you run lspci -p do you see the IDE controller?

Yes, running lspci -p shows the IDE controller. I had read your article about finding PCI IDs and was hopeful that since lspci -p listed the controller and IDE interfaces should be pretty standard that editing the OEM.tgz would work.

Does the lspci -p output show the module of IDE for the controller?
