How To: Install VMware ESX 3.0.x from a USB flash drive


Paul Lalonde heeft een how to guide gemaakt voor het installeren van VMware ESX 3.0.x vanaf een USB flash drive.

Here’s a quick rundown on setting up a USB flash disk (ie. pen drive, flash key, etc.) to install ESX Server.
Requirements:
– You will need at least a 1 GB USB flash disk.
– You must have both the ESX 3.x CD-ROM and ISO image handy.
– You will need an ISO image extraction tool such as WinISO, MagicISO, or even WinRAR.
– You’ll need SYSLINUX, a Linux boot loader for removable media. Get it here: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/syslinux-3.36.zip
– These instructions are based on a Windows PC for simplicity. If you’re a Linux guru, then you can obviously do this under Linux. You’d need to know how to mount .ISO images in order to extract files, etc.
