Hello ,

Actually , its detecting the disk but cannot see free space more than one 1 Mb 
despite that the disk image size is 8 GB , I have solved the issue by using 
--preallocation=full when creating the image disk using qemu-img command .
" Qemu-img create --preallocation=full -f qcow2 /Storage/ESXi5-5.img 8GB "
Now ESXi installer is detecting 8 GB of free disk space .

I'm afraid you will have to provide more information in order to debug the 
issue. Can you paste your guest configuration file and the output of xl -vvv 
create <guest_config>?
