HP VC Flex-10 Enet Module - runnign ESX 4.1 on BL 460c G7

I'm installing ESX 4.1 and running flex module using the on Board Cards and i'm not sure which is the best ESX network card driver to use.

 

Has anyone out there used a specific driver that has been working for you, i've used the HP ESXi image to install but having lots of networking speed issues

 

Can anyone assist.

 

Thanking you in Advnace.

DId you install ESXi using the specific HP image?  That one has the correct drivers for the HP VC NICs.

 

I think the actual driver is the OneConnect (Emulex) driver.
