hi
yes, you can dual boot ESX and Windows (of course it is unsupported.)
The best way to accomplish this is to install Windows first and then ESX.  Once Windows is installed, boot to the ESX CD, chose custom partitioning, and leave the Windows partition alone.  

have a look to this vmware community discussion also its regarding same issue
