VMware ESX 4.0 update 1: supports scripted graphical install ?

I am doing an unattended install of VMware ESX 4.0 update 1,

but it is installing in text mode not in graphical mode ?

Does the scripted install supports graphical installation ?

hi, im curious since it's scripted (automated) does it really matter if it's GUI or CLI ?

You are correct, it should not matter.

I am just curious and also making sure whether it supports scripted graphical install

or else I am missing something.

I worked on scripted installation of ESXi 4.1, as it uses the syslinux and

it uses the graphical for scripted installation.

Yes, I could do scripted installation using NFS method.

I think the other methods doesnt support GUI installation, Prefer to do the installation using CLI, this save network bandwidth

Thanks
