VMware ESXi and Hyper-V installation comparison

I took a look at the Hyper-V installation process to see how it compares with ESXi and decided to install it on Server Core, since that has been touted by Microsoft as the preferred and recommended way of deploying Hyper-V.  Well, after significant research and learning, I was able to distill the process down to what you see here.  It was pretty amazing to count seven reboots; ESXi requires just one.

Here is the process so you can see for yourself:
