    Thanks Chris, good write-up. I have two things to add:

    1. For the VMware base image you can also use the VMware Online depot (instead of downloading and using the Offline bundle) like this:
    Add-EsxSoftwareDepot https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml

    2. I have written a PowerCLI script that automates the manual procedure of building a customized image. See http://esxi-customizer-ps.v-front.de.
