How to Install VMware ESXi 7.0 (7.0U2a)

This article shows you how to set up VMware vSphere Hypervisor ESXi 7.0 (7.0U2a) on a physical server or computer.

The VMware ESXi operating system uses the Linux kernel structure and is installed on a physical machine, allowing multiple virtual machines to be run on that device. Thus, it enables more use of a single server instead of purchasing and using various physical servers.

ESXi is installed on server computers as a standalone operating system without installing it on Windows or Linux systems.

After downloading the ESXi ISO file from the VMware site for a trial period of 60 days, you can install it by following this video tutorial or the steps below.

Step 1: Using Rufus, burn the ESXi ISO file to a flash drive.

Step 2: After your computer starts, boot from your flash memory.

Step 3: After opening vSphere ESXi, wait for the Installer to load.

Step 4: Wait while the necessary files are unzipped and the required modules are loaded.

Step 5: Press Enter on the ESXi installation welcome screen.

Step 6: Press F11 to accept the end-user license agreement.

Step 7: Wait while your computer scans for available devices.

Step 8: Select your disk to upgrade or install and press Enter.

Step 9: Select your keyboard layout and press Enter.

Step 10: Create a solid and hard-to-guess Root password and press Enter.

Step 11: Press Enter on the CPU warning screen.

Step 12: Press F11 to install ESXi 7.0.2.

Step 13: After installing vSphere, your server or computer will restart.

Step 14: After the server restarts, type the IP address obtained from DHCP into your web browser and press Enter to manage your host.

Step 15: On the vSphere login screen, type the password you created in the username field and the password you created in the root password field and click Log in.
