Re: GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2 Booting from USB flash drive
i have setup a similar whitebox from this motherboard, basically i wanted to see if its possible to build a very cheap esxi 4 whitebox.this whole setup(minus the hdd) would not cost more than 200$.
my specs as below
Amd Sempron 140 proc
2GB kinsgton memory
160 gb wd sata hdd
1 tb Hitachi sata hdd
1x intel pro gt gig card
have not tried raid or other stuff
using vsphere client to connect to this box,
installed esxi through an external usb drive.
this is a very budget setup, and is good for people who just want to get started with esxi.
