Before You Begin
Verify that the server hardware clock is set to UTC. This setting is in the system BIOS.
Consider disconnecting your network storage. This action decreases the time it takes the installer to search for available disk drives.
Note - When you disconnect network storage, any files on the disconnected disks are unavailable at installation. Do not disconnect a LUN that contains an existing ESX or ESXi installation. Do not disconnect a VMFS datastore that contains the Service Console of an existing ESX installation. These actions can affect the outcome of the installation.
