Installing Nutanix Community Edition above Vmware ESXi without SSD

No detailed write up. Just the points.
I wanted to test Nutanix Community edition. I have Dell poweredge M630 blade server with only two HDDs ( 512 GB) in RAID-1 configuration. Nutanix CE requires minimum 2 SSDs. Inorder to emulate this, I installed VMWare ESXi hypervisor. The steps for this is easily available. Now create a VM in this VMWare ESXi hypervisor, which will be our Nutanix AHV host. So it is a hypervisor over hypervisor.
