Now that VMware has released their new vSphere 5 into the public, questions always come up on how to make a bootable vSphere 5 USB installation media. As of now there isn’t any official way of doing this if you are using a Microsoft, Apple or Linux GUI based OS. So I have made a small step-by-step guide on how to achieve this. So here we go…
1. Download UNetbootin and run the software (Windows – Mac OS X – Linux).
2. Download the VMware vSphere 5 ISO file -> VMware Download Center.
3. Start the UNetbootin application and choose Diskimage (ISO) and browse to the downloaded ISO file.
4. Choose Type: USB Drive and choose the correct USB drive letter that you want the bootable installer to be installed to.
5. You are now done! Just make sure you edit the boot sequence in your BIOS (UEFI mode on some systems).
You can also visit the vSphere 5 documentation online.

When Skype released it’s new version of their popular software to version 5.3 people (also yours truly) found it not to work as it should. Especially when it came to video-chatting and other bizarre bugs. I have uploaded the previous version 5.2 and recommend downgrading Skype if you experience any of the mentioned problems.
-> Skype v5.2
-> Skype v2.8
While we (still) wait for the TRIM support in Apple Mac OS, there are a few ways to manually get it to work. hardmac.com posted a step-by-step guide for enabling it manually – The universal solution to activate TRIM. If the TRIM support is really necessary at all is also a good question to get answers for. You can read an article posted by bi-tech.net on Mac SSD performance and TRIM in OSX.
Now you can enable the TRIM support just by downloading and running the following patch – TRIM enabler for Mac. Thanks to Oskar Groth, aka Cindori for his contribution.
