ESXi Scripted installs

I have been working for quite awhile with the Ultimate Deployment Appliance to enable builds of ESX and ESXi for the environment.  It works well, really well, for getting a machine up and running quick.

I had been planning to move the installation to USB instead of spinning disks.  Well I found this interesting tidbit on the VMware KB stopping this type of behaviour.

But also found this great site for tools for building more detailed scripted builds.

If anyone finds additional resources for this topic please drop me a comment.
