Just a note for me, sharing this nice article I stumbled on MSDN on “How to create a bootable USB flash drive to install Windows 8” :

I removed a plugin from Add/remove Programs of vCenter server but still it was showing up in the vSphere client.

To resolve the issue I followed this VMware KB article, which worked like a charm:
