SDHC Card for ESXi 5 (vSphere 5)

It’s the 4th SDHC card I’ve use for ESXi intallation. The last 3 used for ESXi 4.1, but now for the ESXi 5.

 

The procedure same with the last 3 :

  3. select the server, ILO, start the server
  4. from Virtual Drives menu, select CD/DVD, Virtual Image
  5. select esxi 5 installer ( VMvisor5.iso)
  6. choose boot from DVDrom
  7. start the installation and select the SDHC card as media

  9. after reboot, configure the ip address, dns, hostname
  10. now you have the ESXi 5 server
