HTTP install of ESX Server 3.5 from Mac OS X Leopard

ESX Server 3.5 just wouldn’t install from my SATA DVD drive cause my motherboard doesn’t have a standard controller known to ESX.  I bypassed this by installing ESX 3.5 from a temporary web server.

Luckily, a Macbook can whip up a web server in a few clicks.

Just go to System Preferences – Sharing, and check off “Web Sharing”

In your /Users/username/Sites folder, copy the VMware folder from the ESX Server 3.5 CD.

When you boot from the ESX 3.5 Server CD, choose HTTP install and enter in the IP of your Mac and the folder.  In my case, http://192.168.1.100/~ken is inputted as the following.
