where are you stuck?
why are you doing esx 3.5

you can build a cheap whitebox to learn v4 and v5
I even got esx v5 working on an atom d525 not really useful mind you only 4 vcores and only 32bit vm's

I have ESXi 5. We have got the Hardware from the company (including license).
Good Idea with the whitebox. Something for me! :-)

Thanks for all answers, very informative and learned a lot!
ESXi 5 was successfully installed.

Have the next problem with vSphere and going to open a new question:
I have done a article on v4 whitebox and you can use that for v5

the only thing most whiteboxes fail are direct i/o if you need that look for a server motherboard I got an intel 5200 for one of my whiteboxes with a xeon 5520
