At VMware Developer Center Samples Exchange, you will find “Sample Exchange”, a new portal built as an extension of VMware Developer Center which provides anyone the ability to browse, download, search, and contribute sample code that builds on VMware APIs. This document is a guide for those that wish to contribute samples on Sample Exchange.
Sample Exchange is not a repository that is hosting samples itself. Sample Exchange provides a catalog of samples that live in other repositories such as Github. Sample Exchange provides discoverability and a work flow around requesting samples as well as easy contribution of samples, but does no hosting itself.

You can use the preboot execution environment (PXE) to boot a host. Starting with vSphere 6.0, you can PXE boot the ESXi installer from a network interface on hosts with legacy BIOS or using UEFI.
ESXi is distributed in an ISO format that is designed to install to flash memory or to a local hard drive. You can extract the files and boot by using PXE.
PXE uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) to boot an operating system over a network. PXE booting requires some network infrastructure and a machine with a PXE-capable network adapter. Most machines that can run ESXi have network adapters that can PXE boot.
The Installing ESXi Using PXE technical note explains how you can PXE boot hosts with ESXi. The technical note explains how to boot using TFTP or using a Web Server, and discusses both legacy BIOS and UEFI.
