VSICM55 - Slide 13-08 - Information for Installing ESXi



Wrong:

The third sentence in the first paragraph in the slide notes states:

If you have not installed ESXi on the target disk before, all data located on the drive is overwritten, including hardware vendor partitions, operating system partitions, and associated data.
Correct:

This is not true in vSphere ESXi 5.x. According to the "vSphere Installation and Setup" guide, "Setting Up ESXi" chapter, "Storage Behavior" paragraph:

On the hard drive or USB device that the ESXi host is booting from, the disk-formatting software retains existing diagnostic partitions that the hardware vendor creates.
