    ESXi 5.1 U1 failed to install on Supermicro X10SLL-F motherboard

    Monchi Novice



      I tried to get ESXi 5.1 U1 up and running on my new homeserver. The server runs a Supermicro X10SLL-F Motherboard which is equipped with two network Controllers ( 1x Intel® i217LM & 1x Intel® i210AT)

      The installation Fails with the message "No network adapters were detected".


      I've downloaded These two generic Linux Driver packages: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=13663&lang=deu&OSVersion=Linux*&DownloadType=Treiber , https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=15817&lang=deu&OSVersion=Linux*&DownloadType=Treiber


      Is there any way to inject those Drivers into the Installation Image? I only found some instructions tu inject prebundle Drivers with PowerCLI (e.g. http://wiki.daveking.com/index.php?title=Adding_Third_Party_Drivers_To_A_VMware_vSphere/ESXi_5_Installation_ISO )



      Best regards
