Hello,  

I am currently trying to install 2 E1G44HT into my ESXi server 4.1.  The good news is that it booted up after I installed them, the problem is I don't think they detected them in vsphere.  When go to the configuration tab then click on networking, then properties and network adapters and add it does not show any new cards.  I also checked Network Adapters under hardware and it only showed the 2 nic's on the motherboard.  I checked to see if they were working by plugging a cable into them and they did light up but I am lost on how to get these detected into esxi and also setting them up.

Have you checked the HCL to check they are supported?

Have you added the new drivers for them from VMware?

I don't know where the drivers are located and I asked this website if that model number was supported and people were telling me yes.
