    did you make any progress on this? It appears that the drivers for SATA and Ethernet are not working so far…

    Actually, I did get it going. I believe it was this post that got me going http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2013/04/installing-esxi-51-update-1-on-mac-mini.html

    The one problem with older minis is that they won’t reboot cleanly when rebooted from vSphere client. You need to manually power cycle them. Also, it doesn’t seem to come up after a power outage. I thought I set it to automatically start from Mac OS X, which should have set the SMC correctly, but maybe I got that wrong.
