    Hi,

    Seems that the Nic' drivers are not getting detected. Try installing the Custom Image from the Hardware for eg : if its dell try the dell Image or Hp try the HP image.

    It would have the custom NIC drivers and that Should work.

    Thanks,
    Avinash

    Hi,
    thank you, but my Server is a self builded System with a Intel i7 4771 and the Intel DH87RL
    Motherboard. I believe, that Dell or Hp dont have the right image for me.

    Improve me please, if I'm wrong.

    Thank you as far as, for the fast answer!

    Here's another link to a blog which explains how to create a custom ISO/CD with the required drivers.

    Hi Slize

    Since last two days I was facing the same issue with DH87MC as it uses the same network controller. Finally I managed to get it work for my PC with desktop board intel DH87MC (Network Controller I217v).


    Attached is the driver's .VIB file that I used injected it to original ISO using ESXi Customizer, it should work for you too.


    Regards

    Hari

    Thanks for sharing your solution.

    Btw. the link I provided earlier in this thread provides a walk-through on how to create a custom image including the driver you mentioned.
