How do I install Windows Server on a VMware ESX Virtual Machine


I need to create a new base image template for Windows Server for our VM infrastructure.  I have created a new VM, and of course it just says it cannot find an OS.  How to do I get it to boot from a windows ISO to install the OS?

Have you connected a CD-Rom drive to the VM and pointed it to the Windows Server ISO?

Yes, but cannot do that until it is powered on right?  By then it has already given me the press any key to continue...

I connected the CD and then rebooted the VM and it worked.  Thanks.
