Hardware Compatibility List (HCL)
First of all check all hardware against the VMware HCL (http://www.vmware.com/go/hcl). This is a very basic step which should be included in every implementation but is omitted on numerous occasions.

 

Hardware assistance
Before you start the ESX installation, remember to switch on Intel VT and XD bit in the BIOS before installation. If you switch Intel VT on after the VMware installation you can not run 64 bit operating systems unless you re-install vSphere again.

 

Storage
Another thing to remember before you start the VMware ESX installation is to disconnect the fiber, iSCSI or NFS storage to prevent the installation from reformating the existing VMFS datastores and losing all virtual machines.
