Here it is End User License Agreement (between User & Provider) so read it and Click Accept EULA
Here , we have to assign storage space for virtual machine. For our scenario 100 GB assigned of VMware virtual storage. Click OK
Note:- Here we install XenServer in VMWare so you can see 100 GB [VMware, VMware Virtual S] but in place of VMware if you install on direct machine then you have to assign storage from main hard disk of machine. You will see option like 100 GB [HP Logical , Volume] but here you can see 100 GB [VMware, VMware Virtual S].
Here , you have to select Media or Source from which system will use for installations, here I select Local Media. Click OK.

Here select Automatic configuration(DHCP) Click OK.
Note:- If you install server direct on machine and if you have multiple NIC card then you have to select one NIC card then you will get the network configuration tab(Step-10).

In DNS configuration select Automatically set via DHCP and Clik OK.
Select time zone according to geographical location of XenServer. Select Asia and click OK.
Select time zone according to city so select Kolkata click OK.

Select NTP is configured by my DHCP server click OK.
Now, you have to give final confirmation after our previous configuration. Select Install XenServer and click OK.
