UPDATE: Just check my post showing the installation of ESXi 5 insisde of VMware Workstation. I did one of my first videos. In this video you'll see that it is possible to install and manage ESX Server even without appropriate hardware. The installation of ESX was possible on a laptop from Fujitsu-Siemes with 4GB of RAM with Intel VT capable processor. I followed the whitepaper from Xtravirt website, which is a how-to whitepaper concerning the steps you'll need to take into consideration for the installation. I'm not an expert of taking videos. Installation ESX Server inside of VMWare Workstation.
This video has been taken with the Camtasia Studio trial version and it's one of my first videos. I'm quite satisfied with but I have still some progress to make though… -:) I was using an ISO image to simulate the CD rom. For your information you can find a free utility to manage ISOs. The utility is called Daemon Tools. I'm sure you know this freeware already.
