Regarding this tutorial http://davehope.co.uk/Blog/turn-an-old-google-appliance-into-an-esx-server/ I am stuck while converting my other GSA with Gigabyte MotherBoards GA-8IPXDR. In fact, I made a Clear CMOS to disable the BIOS password (there is no jumper labeled PWRD_EN on this model).
Before clearing CMOS, I also tried to enter the “default” password (something like AWARDS_SW, test also)
The issue is that since this action, hard drives are not recognized by the BIOS (AMI BIOS v.3.31) although the RAID is created, so I’m not able to install any OS.
So, is there a way to solve this issue? What about flashing the BIOS (using the executable from the Gigabyte Website, and running it with a DOS-based live CD)
