I have installed ESXi 4.1 at a HP server: HP ProLiant DL 380G6 with 2 x Intel Xeon X5650

Everything works correctly and without problem.

I need to install a Dialogic Diva120PRI PCIe EURO board and then I need to assign it to a virtual server.

After installing the card server recognized the card and I applied pass-through.

I've added this device to guest WinXP32Pro VMashine and installed Diva drivers (DivaAll.exe 6.00.3790.0)

But in process of the first reboot to applying settings a have BSOD like this:

Is there the way to fix this problem?

Have anybody met this situation?

Thank you forward.

Thanks for coming back to me with details, although that machine is vt-d compatible the card you're using isn't listed as a supported board my VMWare for DirectPath I'm afraid.

Thanks! And one more subquestions. As I got this situation is OS-independent? Linux won't get me nothing? – Codetyper Dec 13 '10 at 20:08
Unlikely sorry, the guest OS sees it as a hardware fault. – Chopper3 Dec 13 '10 at 20:47
