Maybe the issue is connected to HotPlug memory activated as @fireon suggested at https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/kb5012170-fails-to-install-on-win11-host.113561/page-2#post-502450
Disabling hotplug memory on Windows VM solved my similar issue.
As @thiagotgc asked, for Windows guest VMs is it sufficient to set balloon=0 on the host ?
This way on the VMs I don't see anymore the Virtio Ballon Driver in Device Manager, but the Balloon Service is still running.
Do I need to stop/disable the Balloon Service or furthermore uninstall it...
Here it is:
## Windows Server 2019 Standard Ita
Since PVE 7.2-11 the procedure doesn't work anymore: if I substitute the EFI disk, Windows VM do not boot anymore, with "Guest has not initialized the display (yet)" on console. Old UEFI disk does not permit to install Windows updates.
Does anybody know a solution?
Resolved the issue here on a Windows Server 2019: install of KB5012170 failed at 99%. Then I solved the problem this way:
Poweroff Windows server 2019 VM
Detach EFI disk
Add a new one EFI DISK with "Pre-Enrolled Keys"
Start Windows Update
Install pending update
The update installed...

As you suggested, I've tried the workaround:
root=ZFS=rpool/ROOT/pve-1 boot=zfs kvm.tdp_mmu=N
The installation completed at the first attempt with no issues!!!
unable to complete Windows Server 2022 (Std with desktop environment) installation, starting from 2 different DVD images containing the M$ evaluation release. On about 9 of 10 attempts the VM crashes before asking the Administrator Password.
No matter if:
I use virtio network...
