Hyper-v installation problems

I have a question - what's the Hyper-V equivalent of VMWare ESXi?  I'm trying to find some bootable ISO to install Hyper-V on my bare-metal server, but from what I can tell, Hyper-V seems to insist that it's running within Server 2008, which somewhat defeats the purpose!

Am I missing something here?  Is there a thin, lightweight server hosting ISO that I can download?

There is no Microsoft lightweight Hypervisor, that compares with the the small footprint of ESXi.

That is one of the real benefits of VMware ESXi compared to Microsoft Hyper-V.

Here are the download links for Hyper-V, (this is Windows with no GUI!)
