Nutanix ships all nodes with the Nutanix AHV hypervisor installed, if you want to use VMware ESXi as your hypervisor you will have to use the Nutanix Foundation tool to image the VMware hypervisor and install Acropolis on top of it. The process is fairly simple and straightforward and this video shows how to do it. We are leveraging Nutanix Foundation 4.5 to install VMware ESXi 6.7U3b as the hypervisor and Nutanix Acropolis 5.16.1.

Once you are done with the installation of ESXi as shown in this video you will want to configure your environment following the steps in this second video.
