2020.05.6 – Install CentOS 8 Server on VMware ESXi

This page inspire me: https://linuxhint.com/install_centos8_vmware_esxi_server/

Note: This version is without GUI. If needed chose Server with GUI.

The inspiration is very good. I have some differences and I will put here.


  • Install into MacBook Pro > VMware Fusion > VMware ESXi
  • Click ESXi web client > Datastore browser > Create directory with name CentOS
  • Different Hard Disk and Network Adapter
  • Host Name: CentOS
  • Tipe and Data: for Romania
  • Username: silvia and mine password
  • Include also Root password

All other are exactly as in the helping blog.
