comment VMware ESXi dual / triple boot on a test machine
@Iain: Because we are testing PCI Flash card drivers and caching/VSAN software for Windows, ESXi and Linux and they must be tested on the bare metal with the target OS - no abstraction layers or intermediate drivers must be in use. We also do testing in VMs.

comment VMware ESXi dual / triple boot on a test machine
Thanks James - yes, I am wondering about ESXi's multiple partition setup - hence my question. We already use USB sticks for ESXi on some servers, but it just shifts the issue to selecting another type of boot device in the BIOS setup or boot menu, which is what we want to avoid. Also, we want to stick to disk (magnetic or flash) media because taking images of the boot media for backups and restoring specific test environments is much quicker on HDD/SDD - I might try with a smaller stick, but writing back a 32GB USB drive from an cloned image took over an hour.

@joeqwerty: agreed, that would be ridiculous in a production environment - but not in a testing environment, as I mentioned.

Hi Mike: It's an option but not the preferred one unless we can't get this working.
