IT WORKS!!! I officially have ESXi 5.0 now running on this DQ67EP MINI-ITX board!!! I have a real treat in store for everyone as soon as I finish configuring ESXi. Thank you so much Chilly! I did notice a single red line error code flashed by when it loaded the NIC drivers, but it still let me install no sweat! Outstanding job man... Stay tuned for more.
