fresh installation of esxi5.0 screencast

You can run the ESXi 5.0 installer from a CD/DVD or USB flash drive to do an interactive upgrade or migration.The installer works the same as for a fresh installation, but if you select a target disk that already contains an ESX/ESXi 4.x installation, the installer upgrades the host to 5.0, and gives you the option to migrate some existing host settings and configuration files, and preserve the existing VMFS data stores.
