Previous versions of ESX would run in VM Ware workstation, but they
don't any longer, one of the 3.x.x versions changed that.
I think ESX would know that it is in a VM. You can't run Hyper-V in
Hyper-V, the hardware VT is prevented from showing up in a VM.
You could always give it a try and let us know.
