A note on the ESXi installer booting. I don't recall offhand if you can just sanboot the ISO directly, however I extract the contents of the CD onto my webserver, and just tell it to point to pxelinux, to go to mboot.c32, to load the installer directly. This works perfectly, and FAST on BIOS machine (though I still using a CD for uEFI machines atm).

Some more information is here
And more specifically, you can see my menu setup here
I don't have a direct link to the part in boot.php, but looking at it, it should be fairly easy to spot. Do ignore the part about trying to get iPXE to load ESXi natively (all the module statements and such, current time it does not work).
