if you look for OS like on for standard Linux's or Windows you will not find it.
ESXi has one linux partition on which is the system but the system in packed mode (like on the installation media) - all files are compressed in some files and by starting are all these files decompressed to the RAM disk from where it then operate.
When you connect the ESXi booting disk to linux you find all for what you searching.
