VMware Wosktation allows to run ESXi as virtual machine (virtual environment as virtual machine). It can be very useful to evaluate, experiment and learn vSphere at home.  I will show how easy is to install ESXi 5.1 as virtual machine on VMware Workstation 9.

When you run ESXi 5.1 in a VMware Workstation 9 virtual machine you can run virtual machines in that virtualized ESXi-host if your CPU has virtualization support. (You might need to enable it in the BIOS) You will always be able to run 32 bit vm’s in the virtual ESXi-host. But running 64 bit virtual machine requires the EPT feature in your Intel-processor (for AMD it’s called RVI).
