Create a Bootable USB Install Media for ESXi
While rebuilding my home server based on ESXi 5.5 hypervisor, I needed to install the operating system. Because I don’t have an optical drive on the machine, I needed an easy way to run the ESXi installation process from - and to - the same USB flash drive. Tinkertry.com has a great writeup on how to do such a thing using Rufus. It was easy and painless, a pleasant surprise when dealing with ESXi!
