Thank you, but If I want to run ESX on vm guest, how would it work? It will format from VMFS to ext3 or ext4?

if you want to create a Nested ESX installation, it will create ESX partitions, ext3,4 and create vmfs partition for the datastore, inside a virtual disk, vmdk, which is stored on the hosts vmfs datastore
