Try an Intel card.
Not sure were to post this so here I am lol.
Just playing around with ESX and virtulisation etc.... I`ve got a test server i`m installing ESX onto, its haulting on the ethernet controller part i`m getting this:
"No network adapters were detected, either no network adapters are physically connected to the system, or a suitable driver could not be located. A third party driver may be required.
Previously I installed WinXP onto this test server to identify what the network adapter is.
Its a "Realtek RTL8168/8111 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet" NIC Driver
I`m stumped now.
Try an Intel card.
esx is fussy about network cards... see if you have an intel e1000 laying around.
Yes as said above basically your Realtek card is not suporrted by ESX. There is no way to make it work.
You will have to pop a new card in there and Intel are a good bet!
There's a good list of supported hardware on the VMWare website, where you can check particular servers, cards, motherboards etc. Cheapy Intels work well as stated.
I`ve got a onboard intel card in my PC however the CPU is not 64bit, tried to install ESX on another machine I had and it came up saying 64bit is required.
I think you'll need Hardware Virtualisation support on your processor. Check this page [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86_virtualization]x86 virtualization - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]
Intel Pro 1000 GT on a PCI card worked for me, Pro 100 won't (Gigabit minimum)
Ok so the CPU and network driver problem is sorted, I had an error while installing esx 4 "insert the installation media" I worked out from vmware communties that you need to install esx 3.5 however when installing this i`m getting:
"Unable to find a supported device to write the Vmware ESX Server 3i.5.0 image to"
Run it from USB?
I`m new to all this so please do help me
Is hard drive in AHCI or IDE emulation mode?
