Guide to install esxi7 on the newly built SuperMicro server. There are a ton of guides out there explaining how to install ESXi onto your host. Honestly, it’s not that difficult. But i’ll post my setup.
VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) 7.0U2a
Download the ISO file from vmware, should see a file like this: VMware-VMvisor-Installer-7.0U2a-17867351.x86_64.iso
Burn the ISO to a usb, microsd, ssd, etc. In my case, I had a USB laying around and burned it there. File size is around 400MB. I used Rufus 3.14
Insert the usb into SuperMicro usb slot in the back and power on, you will need a keyboard and a monitor hooked up as well.
If you followed all the steps above, you should now have ESXi7 installed on your supermicro and you should be able to access the UI. Username will be root, password will be the password you set in the above steps.
