One small note, ESXi isn't installed but rather streamed to memory.

When Auto Deploy was first introduced it could only be used for stateless deployment. However, Auto Deploy was enhanced and now provides stateless deployment, stateless caching as well as stateful installations. Take a look at e.g. http://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2012/09/vsphere-5-1-auto-deploy-stateless-caching-and-stateful-insta... for details.
