Hello Experts,

I'm trying to create a new virtual machine on my VMware ESXi 5.5

The aim is upload a set of files to the VMFS/NFS datastore on the ESXi.

The first problem I have is creating a virtual machine. I get to the point where I am asked to 'Specify a name and Location'. As you can see from image1, the default name that is created is 'New Virtual Machine'. Can someone show me how to specify a location?

Also, when get to the point where I'm asked to 'Select a destination storage', see image2 nothing appears
