Peek at Vsphere Installer

Posted: May 27, 2009 in VMware

I logged into the VMware download section Monday morning and got a nice surprise, ESX 4.0 otherwise known as Vsphere was at the top of the download section.

After downloading the DVD iso I decided I would see if I could get a Vsphere virtual machine up and running with Workstation 6.5 as all the lab gear at work was being used.

Here are some screenshots for those of you who are keen to see what the installer looks like.
