Hi all!

I'm new here on the forum and would like to ask if anyone has any experience with Panda and ESXI?
I would like to install this maybe onto LattePanda V1 - 4GB/64GB. Is this possible, anyone tried it? (If you tried other pandas then it is also ok if you write what u got a success on.)
Any suggestions on what can and cant be used maybe?

As far as i read the Intel Atom® x5-Z8350 Processor supports virtualization, and it could run ESXI, as far as i can tell. Would like to try ESXI 6.5, 6.7 or 7.0. (Had a PC with 6.5 a while back i loved it.)
The little project I have is:
I would like to run retro build on it like Win Xp 32bit and an instance of win7 maybe, or and older operating system, like win98,ME, etc maybe dos and 3.11? ESXI supports these if you install it normally. (Good old games that ran on the 386-486DX and P1-P2 games and applications. Once upon a time in the 90's:))
I know I know i should use an emulator etc etc.....
Well i would like to have this for my kids and want to give them the real original experience. ESXI is the ideal thing, it can be restored from snapshot, logged etc.
So is there anyone who done this before?

Tried a PI but ESXI only supports 64bit on ARM. So time for the Panda to shine.

Thanks in advance
