Run VMware ESXi 4.0 on USB devices

There are many posts in how to run VMware ESXi on USB flash in the Internet. However, the method can be applied to the USB portable disk as well.

This is one of the links for running ESXi 3.5 on USB flash drive, Be very careful to select the correct disk. The image uses entire disk space, so all data on the disk will be wiped out.

The steps to run ESXi 4.0 are the same as the above except the image dd file is in image.tgz instead of install.tgz.
