Faiz Posted January 28, 2011 Share Posted January 28, 2011 Hi! Hope I posted this in the right area. My current machine is an HP A6200N desktop that hasn't been modified, but I'm currently interested in building a new machine and would like to use this HP as a dedicated ESXi virtualization server. Here are the specs: Base processor [ESXi Compatible]: Athlon 64 X2 (B) 5000+ 2.6 GHz (65W) 2000 MT/s (mega transfers/second) Socket AM2 Chipset [ESXi Incompatible]: GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 Motherboard [ESXi Compatible?]: Manufacturer: ECS Motherboard Name: MCP61PM-HM HP/Compaq motherboard name: Nettle2-GL8E I googled the list of compatible hardware for ESXi and the closest specs I came across were: http://www.vm-help.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1228&p=3383#p3383 The only difference is the Motherboard, and wanted to know if my Mobo is compatible? I currently do not have the means to check, so was wondering if I could go ahead and purchase the parts for my new desktop and shift over all at once. If you have any questions, or would like me to elaborate further, please let me know. Thank you! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
