Thanks and Best Regards

Welcome to the Community,

the difference between ESXi and the Hypervisor is just the licence key. The binaries are the same. Unless you use any of the advanced features, you should be able to enter the free license key under "Licensed Features" in the host's "Configuration" tab in the vSphere Client.

Depending on the version you are looking for,:

3.5: http://www.vmware.com/go/getesxi

4.1: http://www.vmware.com/go/get-esxi-4

5.0: http://www.vmware.com/go/get-free-esxi/
