I tried installing CentOS 8 on ESXi 6.7

Procedure from virtual machine creation to login.

1. Create a virtual machine

Created with ESXi.

Guest OS settings

compatibility Guest OS family Guest OS version
ESXi6.7 virtual machine Linux CentOS8

Virtual machine settings

CPU memory hard disk Provisioning
1 2GB 16GB Thin provisioning

2. OS installation

Power on & start installation

When I turned on the virtual machine I created, an installation menu appeared on the console. The monochrome screen is cool. By default, the second from the top is selected, but since the first is faster, select "* Install CentOS Linux 8 *" at the top. FlowTime_8

After that, when I was looking at the screen, a lot of green [OK] was flowing. I'm glad it looks like OK.

Language setting

Next is the language setting. I'm Japanese, so I chose Japanese. FlowTime_8

Installation overview

After that, a screen called Installation Overview appeared. This is the screen after setting, so I will write below how it was set. There are three setting items. FlowTime_8

① Software selection

It will be a virtual machine that is quite different from what I thought I made a mistake here. (I did it many times) This time I want to create a CUI server, so I chose "minimal installation". After selecting, click [Finish] on the upper left to return to the original screen. FlowTime_8

② Device selection

I wasn't particular about it this time, so keep the default. FlowTime_8

③ Regional setting

I feel like I don't have to do it. I was curious, so I set it to Tokyo for the time being.

After setting (1) to (3), click [Start Installation] at the bottom right.

Setting root password

At this point, the goal is right in front of you. Set the root password while watching the progress blue bar grow quickly with warm eyes. FlowTime_8

3. Reboot & Login

When the blue bar is fully extended, the [Restart] button will appear, so click it. It is important not to be afraid even if the power is suddenly turned off. FlowTime_8

After restarting, this screen appeared. Select the top. FlowTime_8

After waiting for a while, the login screen appeared. User : root password: When you enter ... FlowTime_8

Yay! I was able to log in! FlowTime_8

4. Initial setting

I will summarize the initial settings after this in another post.
