Hi

I asked this question:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Servers/Q_27741663.html

So I got very helpful links from hanccocka & carolchi.

Unfortunately this link is not working anymore:

How to set up Esxi:
http://www.virtualvcp.com/esx-whitebox-servers/35-vmware-esxi-35-on-hp-proliant-ml110-g5

Any other links?

Many Thanks! My friend has no idea with ESXi.

I have done a article on v4 whitebox and you can use that for v5

the only thing most whiteboxes fail are direct i/o if you need that look for a server motherboard I got an intel 5200 for one of my whiteboxes with a xeon 5520
