Is your vCenter Server a VM or physical machine. If it's a VM, and you wanna create a VM from an ISO your vCenter VM is using, how is it using the ISO, or if it's an 'unpacked' ISO, is your vCenter VM using the CD Drive of the ESXi Host or your workstation you're using the vSphere Client on. Just create a new VM, then to install the OS, change the newly created VM's CD Drive to point to either Client Device or Host Device depending on where you have the OS install located. If it's an ISO file, you can upload the ISO to a Datastore, then point the new VM's CD Drive to 'browse for an ISO' and choose the Datastore the ISO is on.

Please clarify if I'm not reading your question correctly.

Regards.
