Post Re: ASUS M3N78-EM (NVIDIA GeForce 8300 chipset) using SATA MCP78
Hello all !
I a previous post, user saturno ( Luis) presented some info about his motherboard M4N78 XXX which is a nvidia chipset based board :

ide interface Mass Sotrage Controller
NVidia NForce MCP77 IDE/PATA controller [vmhba0]
Class 0101: 10de:0759

SATA Controller Mass Storage
Class 0106: 10de:0ad4

Ethernet Controller
Class 0200: 10de:0760

Then , another user Bookworm ( George ) make references to a motherboard which has an AMD chipset ( possible a M4A78 motherboard ):
1002:4390 storage ata_piix
1002:4391 storage achi ( ahci )
1002:439c storage ide

So, Bookworm can you please confirm that your motherbord is not a nVidia one ?
Best regards,
Cosmix

Not to be picky or anything,

but this thread is about the M3N78 motherboard, hi-jacking it to start talking about another motherboard, another chipset perhaps etc is not helpful to other people who are trying to find the information about both chipsets and motherboard combinations.

maybe it's best to separate these two threads and start a new one for this new problem ;)

just my $0.02

Not really. This is a tough one :-)

I'm waiting for a new release of ESXi to see if more hardware will be added support.
For now, with this chipset I only get Hyper-V and XenServer working. (both also free and great)

Regards

Luís

Successfully working and stable for around 6 months using the Asus M3A78-EM and the Phenom X3 720 cpu. The Raid setup and the onboard nic still doesn't work but I just bought some intel CT desktop pcie nic cards and I didn't bother to raid the drives. I couldn't get it to work at all until I upgraded the BIOS to version 2003.

:D

With V4.0 ESXi, the board can be used with the built-in NIC. If it's not posted yet, I can send info
