From Proxmox VE
Jump to navigation Jump to search


This Mainboard / Motherboard compatibility list for Proxmox VE is work in progress and is never complete. Everybody is encouraged to add working configurations - do not forget to add the used Proxmox VE kernel version (2.6.18/2.6.24/2.6.32).



  • M4A78T-E (2.6.24) onboard-Nic don't work
  • M3A78 AMI ACPI BIOS 1606, CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ works with 2.6.24-2-pve but no with more recent (even with 2.6.24-5-pve hangs at boot time)
  • M3A78-EM, Phenom II X4 920 Processor, 1.2 and 1.3 hangs at boot time, not tried 1.4
  • M3A, AMD Phenom 9550 processor, works with 1.3 (not tried with 1.4, don't remember about previous versions of Proxmox)
  • P5KPL-VM - Intel G31 Platform - with E7500 CPU (SLGTE) works fine on Proxmox VE 1.7 defaults
  • P7P55D Deluxe works fine
  • P7P55D Pro works fine with pve-manager/1.5/4822 and kernel: 2.6.18-2-pve
  • M4A89TD PRO/USB3 + AMD X6 1055T works fine with pve-manager/1.6/5087 kernel: 2.6.32-4-pve
  • M5A88-M works perfectly. Had to change the BIOS setting to enable 'Secure Virtual Machine mode' (disabled by default) in order to have it recognize 64 bit support, and for KVM installation. Once this was done, works great and very fast. Onboard NIC is fine and fully supported by PM VE. NOTE: MB supplied RAID support is NOT recognized by PM. Needs to have a decent RAID adapter. I got mine working with LSI SATA Raid Card (HP LSI SAS3041E-HP)
  • ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 works fine as June 2013 with AMD FX-8350 CPU, motherboard BIOS 1503, and Proxmox 3.0. (i.e., 2.6.32-20-pve)


  • GA-G33M-S2L (2.6.24/2.6.32), everything works out of the box.
  • GA-EP45-UD3L - Use on BIOS vF4 - The BIOS vF7 causes ACPI errors and does not boot
  • GA-MA770 UD3 rev 2.0 - BIOS FG causes kernel panic on copy large files (> 5GB) to server (AMD Athlon 5050e, 160GB SATA, 8GB RAM)
  • GA-EP35C-DS3R Using BIOS F4


  • X8STE (2.6.18), all components working ("cluster-proof")
  • X8ST3-F (2.6.32), all components working (Latest BIOS)
  • X7SBE (2.6.32-3-pve), all components working (cluster, DRBD storage, software RAID0)
  • X8SIL-F (2.6.18), all components working


  • 0K399H ver. A02 of PowerEdge R610 with 2x Xeon L5520 (2.6.32); 3 node cluster
  • PowerEdge 1950 & 2950 works flawlessly out of the box. Make sure to enable Intel-VT support in BIOS. Default Perc 5/i RAID is fully recognized by PM VE
