How to install an ESXi 6.5

You might want to know the other methods for installing ESXi 6.5. Where can you install ESXi 6.5 – to the local disk or elsewhere? In fact, there are five different ways to install and deploy VMware ESXi 6.5:

  1. Installation to a USB stick – the server boots from the USB stick;
  2. Installation to the local SATA/SAS or FC drive (RAID1);
  3. Installation to an SD flash card (certain hardware manufacturers provide a mirrored “double” slot);
  4. Boot from LUN via a hardware iSCSI card, FC or FCoE (fiber channel over Ethernet);
  5. Stateless booting via VMware auto-deployment.
