Demo: Running VMware ESX Server 3i inside Workstation 6

This year attendees of VMworld 2007 received a pleasing surprise: a 1GB USB key with a beta version of upcoming ESX Server 3i.

When one of 3i supported servers is not available for a trial deployment, users may want to install the beta inside a virtual machine, which is not exactly an easy goal to achieve.

To simplify the whole operation David Davis, created a nice 16-minutes webcast which explains how to extract the ESX Server 3i image from the USB key and run it inside a Workstation 6 virtual machine.
