DL360 Gen6 with Win2016 server bare metal or ESXi?

Hi there,

I do have an HP Proliant DL360 G6 (E5504 2GHz, 8GB RAM,), within an small office with 2 computers. They only use MS Office and Accounting software. I need a Win2016Server (with the AD) and a Win7 with the accounting software that's all.
I am not sure if it would be better and more professional solution to implement the server bare metal (Win2016) and HyperV or VMWare inside for the Win7; or to instlall ESXi on the server and have two VM, one 2016Server and Win7.
Someone told me that I had no enough power on the server to virtualiza, and I am not good at this knowledge, so I ask you for advise.
Thanks

I believe you can install the Esxi in the host server and mount 2 VMs . There shouldnt be any issues with this
