esx 4.1 mass installation

Hi All,

I need to install esx 4.1 on 32 blades, is there a way to do a mass installation instead of install it one by one?

Please advise. Thanks

Scripted installation via PXE and Network or embedded installation on ESXi flash drives.

oh, but make sure that's USB 2.0, otherwise cdrom or network install is much faster.
so could you point me to the install esx 4.1 from USB document?

Thanks
this is the article using unetbootin, it allows you to "convert" mosts isos to USB.

Make sure you use fast USB 2.0 devices, flash drives, and your servers have USB2, otherwise consider a PXE network install.
