Last Modified: 2015-03-17
Hi all,

I'm running ESXi 5.5 on a homelab.

- Lenovo T130
- Xeon 1225

I want to load a few VM's - maybe Server 2012 and a couple of Win 7 x64 machines and have a couple of questions:

1. Does anyone know how to inject the LAN drivers for this Lenovo
2. Should vt-d be enabled in general for ESXi?

Thanks in advance.
