Installation

No customization is required to install the latest ESXi 5.5 and ESXi 6.0 versions on 6th Gen NUCs. You can use the images provided by VMware to Install ESXi:
The simplest way to install ESXi is by using the original ISO and Rufus to create a bootable ESXi Installer USB Flash Drive.

****

Download Rufus.  I have 2.9.934
http://rufus.akeo.ie/



















Set the above options, and remember to select the disk image next to
"Create a bootable disk using" and select the iso file to be bootable.

Vmware ISO 6.0 was downloaded from here:

Vmware FREE-ESXI6

A link to the current vmware may have to be gotten by following links to get an evaluation version.  The above is for reference, and is the version my systems run.
