First blog entry this Year will be in English and about creating ESX/ESXi and Linux installers on USB sticks.
During my IT work I tried so many tools which should create bootable Linux but always there was something wrong with this or that. I tried Unetbootin, ISO2USB and others.
Today I found working tool which is called LiLi – Linux Live USB Creator. You can download it here http://www.linuxliveusb.com
I tried it with ESXi 5.1 and 4.1, Ubuntu and CentOS – in all cases installation was clean and smooth. Process of creating bootable USB was very fast and it works like a charm.
Why I even started to look for new tool? I was following VMware documentation but of course there was “small” problem. When I tried to boot it I got error related to wrong version of syslinux installed on the box I was preparing my USB (mboot.c32: not a COM32R image).
Long story short – this tool is very handy and it worked.
I recommend to use it for VMware ESXi 5.1 USB install.
My experience and skills have been proven by leading vendor certifications like AWS, Alibaba Cloud, VMware, and Microsoft. I contribute to the IT community and I received VMware vExpert 2014 - 2019, vExpert Pro and VMware vExpert NSX 2017 Award.
