2. OVH IPFailovers (MAC address required for vm's)
3. Updating OVH Esxi to latest 5.0.2 patch (enable w8 and w2012 vm's)

4. Getting a FREE vmware Vcenter lic. (limited to 32 Gb ram)
5. Installing VCenter Server Hypervisor on your local machine - static IP and OS requirements
6. Installing VCenter Client in your local computer to access Esxi (local vcenter Server or remote Hosts)
7. Getting hold of Microsoft ISO files required for vm's - a "JP Trick"
  • Upload the XP ISO file and "wget" it through SSH
  • Install an XP vm
  • Dowload your ISO files from microsoft
  • Install VCenter Client to "upload" these ISO files to the Esxi datastore

8. Creating a w2012 or w7 or w8 vm
  • MAC Address requirements with Esxi - OVH IP failover allocation
  • Licensing with MSDN - or Bizspark or ActionPack

9. Using RDPManager to access your vm's compared to Microsoft RDP
