I currently have an HP ProLiant Microserver set up at home, for standard tasks - a simple Linux distro, running a few services (Transmission, Sickbeard, etc.), hosting a few websites, e-mail, and such.
However this Linux distro I'm using, no matter how user-friendly, has some drawbacks. For this, I want to set this device up as a multi-OS system, using a hypervisor (that can be XenServer, vSphere, or whatever else is there on the market now). All of the OS would be a low-profile Linux installation, but all grouped together and managed from one interface.
The problem is, though, that I do not have a VGA cable, nor do I have anyone in the vicinity with one who could help me out (transitioned to HDMI a few years ago, since I only used VGA once, when I got the server).
So my question would be: is there any possibility to run the hypervisor, pre-configured, from a USB stick? Basically, a boot-and-done style system, write the flash drive, plug in, boot, and it is ready to create virtual appliances. I know it is hard to achieve especially all the customization done by the hypervisor prior to being ready to function as desired (hardware-specific configurations, etc.), but it would help a lot. And I wouldn't have to run around for a damn VGA cable any time there's a problem.
