A very quick google of "esxi boot live" gave me lots of entries, including THIS ONE where they basically advise against it, since all the configuration and settings on the VM's being hosted would go to /tmp, and be lost on a reboot. They recommend using a USB flash drive if you just don't want to "install" it to the hard drive. A good reference article (again from the same google search) is http://www.techhead....i-usb-pen-drive...
BUT why wouldn't you want to install it - it isn't big (It is afterall a HYPER-visor) and it needs a place to stor information about the VM's, etc. So, poke around more on the web in general, since yes, it is POSSIBLE...but it's probably not what you want to do...

quick qns : booting esxi on dvd would copy the program to ram and boot and eject the dvd or have to leave the dvd on the drive?

IF you want to have a hypervisor for the laptop i would try virtualcomputer.com. It is a type 1 hypervisor with a client front end. I would not run it on a dual core as the client takes a core for its use. I did enjoy it on my quad core but the software (kind of) restricts you to win 7/ vista/ Xp. I was able to get server running but it was a pain plus there is no networking between the VM's.
You could try Hyper-V but make sure you do the full version. server core will not get you much. Hyper-v isnt (in my opinion) the best hypervisor but the lack of license restriction (datacenter, enterprise) makes it nice.
If you have any questions let me know. I will do the best to advise.

What is the fastest and light weight and install on dvd hypervisor on the market? Xtratum have a slax live dvd but has little people talking about them. Any others offering live cd or dvd

I guess to gfive you better answers, you need to tell us what is the GOAL, not how you arrive at the destination. Especially since XtratuM is a hypervisor specially designed for real-time embedded systems (taken right off their web site) - which looks like the last update was in 2009!
SO is this normal X86 based computers or some sort of special embedded processor? What is the purpose of the hypervisor - what type of OS will sit on top of it? Etc.
