  1. Download the broadcom driver (vmware download) or broadcom driver (local download).
  2. Download ESXi-Customizer.
  3. Run ESXi-Customizer.cmd, select the ESXi iso you’d like to modify (instructions are for 5.0 u1 but 5.1 works also), the broadcom driver zip and save the iso.
  4. Use unetbootin to create the bootable usb key

After you run through the ESXi install, if you have a DHCP server on the network, you’ll now get an IP assignment.
