what is the difference between esxi and esxi embedded.

What is the difference between esxi and esxi embedded. which one of these products is free to install. Also on the download page I see the following , what does this mean...

"This license key is only valid for VMware ESXi 3.5 Update 2 and later"

Both ESXi and ESXi are free.  The difference between the ESXi embedded vs ESXi is tha the embedded one runs off of a usb drive (usually inside the server) vs ESXi which is installed on the local hard drive.

The license key ESX3.5 Update 2 or later is fine, the latest version is ESXi 3.5 Update 4, basically it's stating that it will not work with really old ESXi builds

Hope this helps
