If you do not have the ESXi installation CD-ROM, you can create one.

1

Log in to VMware Communities using your VMware store account.

2

Download the ISO file for ESXi Installable from the VMware Web site.

3

Burn the ISO file onto CD media.

If you cannot burn a CD image or the server does not have a CD drive, you can perform a remote installation or use a USB CD/DVD drive.
