Partition local drive for ESXi OS and datastore?

Setting up a homelab on a PC, is it possible to partition a local SSD as a VMware ESXi OS partition and the remaining space as a local datastore? Sorry for the dumb question, I’ve only ever installed it on servers with SD boot cards for the OS.

  1. You can because that’s how I did it. I know lots of people put the hypervisor on a USB but that really bothers me. I used a small 120ssd for the os, and used the rest for a minecraft server.
