I don't understand what you mean. If you have installed the VM, you already have it in ESXi.

What I meant is in Esxi VM there is always a Guest OS and then the Real OS.

Guest OS is installed first after you create the VM.  And then what would be the correct way to install the OS that you need.

I think you are misunderstanding something. ESXi is the host.Under that you install your Guest OS's which are VM's.
