How to make a bootable VMware vSphere 5 USB installation media

 

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 (WindowsMac OS XLinux).

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.

Please post some comments if you feel like leaving some feedback!

 

 

 

TRIM support/enabler for Mac

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.
