      Hi all

       

       

       

       

       

      im trying to install ESXi on a HP Compaq DX2450.  My sata controller is an Nvidia Nforce430 (MCP61). When the installer runs fails saying "The installation operation.....blablabla". When a take a look on the log, i can see this:

       

       

      'VmkCtl' warning. Loading module sata_nv failed. Exec of command /sbin/mvkload_mod /mod/sata_nv.o succeded, but returned with non-zero status. 1

       

       

      Failed to load module 'sata_nv': Invalid argument.
