How to install Windows 2008 R2 64bit Guest OS on Vmware ESXi 5.1


VMware: Installing a Guest Operating System (Windows 2008 R2 64bit) on Virtual Machine

Installing a Windows 2008 R2 64bit Guest OS on Vmware ESXi
Installing a Windows 2008 R2 64bit Guest OS on Vmware ESXi

You can install a guest operating system from a CD-ROM or from an ISO image. Installing from an ISO image is typically faster and more convenient than a CD-ROM installation.

It might be necessary to change the boot order in the virtual machine’s BIOS settings. However, sometimes a virtual machine’s boot sequence progresses too quickly for a user to open a console to the virtual machine and enter BIOS setup.

Right Click on VM -> Options Tab -> Boot Options -> “The next time the virtual machine boots, force entry into the BIOS setup screen”

 Windows 2008 R2 64bit Virtual Machine - Edit Settings- Boot Options
Windows 2008 R2 64bit Virtual Machine – Edit Settings- Boot Options

The virtual machine enters the BIOS setup the next time it starts.

 Windows 2008 R2 64bit Virtual Machine - Edit Settings- Boot Options - CD Drive
Windows 2008 R2 64bit Virtual Machine – Edit Settings- Boot Options – CD Drive

Or

1 Display the Virtual Machine Properties dialog box.

2 Click the Options tab and in the settings list under Advanced, select Boot Options.

3 Enter a delay value long enough to enable the console view to stabilize and for you to connect the CD-ROM using the vSphere Client.

4 Click OK.

5 Open a console to the virtual machine.

6 Power on the virtual machine.

7 While the virtual machine proceeds through its boot sequence, connect your local device, or an ISO image, to the virtual machine’s CDROM drive.

3 Options:

CD-ROM: Insert the installation CD-ROM for your guest operating system into the CD-
ROM drive of your ESX/ESXi host.

ISO image:

a Right-click the virtual machine in the inventory list and select Edit Settings.
b Click the Hardware tab and select CD/DVD Drive.
c In the Device Type panel, select Datastore ISO File and browse for the ISO image for your guest operating system.

User can use the option “VMware: Connect to ISO Image on Local Disk” also which is only available when VM is powered on.

Before Powering on the VM (Option Disabled)

Windows 2008 R2 64bit Virtual Machine - Connect to Host Device
Windows 2008 R2 64bit Virtual Machine – Connect to Host Device

After Powering on the VM (Option enabled)

Windows 2008 R2 64bit Virtual Machine - Connect to ISO image on Local Disk
Windows 2008 R2 64bit Virtual Machine – Connect to ISO image on Local Disk

And If you provide Windows 2008 R2 64bit ISO file then it will start:

Windows 2008 R2 64bit installation on Virtual Machine
Windows 2008 R2 64bit installation on Virtual Machine
Windows 2008 R2 64bit installed on Virtual Machine
Windows 2008 R2 64bit installed on Virtual Machine

Use Rsync to create the updates-released repository (Not tried) 5) Change baseurl as per assigned IP address or use Localhost; Make sure that you change baseurl in all sections in the /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo file (Hint: You need to make sure that baseurl is correct else it will give error for repodata/repomd.xml file; If createrepo command will run successfully then this directory along with files will be created where all RPMs are located or where you have created repository. ).

CentOS is a free operating system distribution based upon the Linux kernel. It is derived entirely from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) distribution. CentOS exists to provide a free enterprise class computing platform and strive to maintain 100% binary compatibility with its upstream source, Red Hat. CentOS stands for Community enterprise Operating System.

The partition mounted on /boot/ contains the operating system kernel which allows your system to boot operating system, along with files used during the bootstrap process. For most users, a 250 MB boot partition is sufficient.

The root file system is represented by a (/) which is the top of the directory tree. This is roughly equivalent to your “C:” drive under DOS or Windows. User must create a partition for the root directory. The size of your root partition will differ depending on what you install or plan to install.

SWAP space on your hard drive can be used as virtual memory. Virtual memory allows your computer to run bulky programs and perform multifaceted tasks even if it does not have enough physical RAM. Data is written to a swap partition when there is not enough RAM to store the data your system is processing. Create one swap partition that is 50% to 100% the size of the physical RAM in your system. If you are short on RAM with plenty of drive space, go big. If you are short on drive space and have lots of RAM, go little.
