comment Can I virtualize a physical hard drive directly on ESXi?
Unfortunately this seems only available if you want to virtualize the local machine. At the moment I am trying to virtualize a remote machine and the only option I have is to save it to a server...

comment A “home server” to “control” other PCs
"The line that separates business technology from home technology is a mental one IMO." I totally second that. Enterprise environments are obviously much more powerful in terms of hardware, but their actual implementation can be exactly as one found in a home setup. Only the number of devices involved changes.

comment Can I virtualize a physical hard drive directly on ESXi?
At the moment the physical hard drive is directly connected to the motherboard of the ESXi server, and from the vSphere client I can see it attached to the machine. However, i don't seem to get the option to use it as the hard drive of a virtual machine running on ESXi, but maybe I am missing something here..

How did you install Java in the first place? Try running yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk

No, the machine was not pingable and it could not ping either, not even a gateway. I found a solution though, see my answer, but thanks for the suggestion!

Yeah, I absolutely want to use ESXi, it makes running a home server a much better experience. I did use ESXi customizer to inject my network card drivers (version 5.5 didn't have them, but version 5.1 did), and in fact installation works, i.e. the network card is detected. The problems start when I actually boot it :(

@JoshR I have tried installing version 5.5 from scratch (hoping it might be a bug in 5.1) but I still see the same behavior..

@joeqwerty You're right, question updated, I should have clarified better. I have read so many posts online about this that I gave this information for granted :D
