After server failure, restore zfs pool, but vm cant boot

Greetings friends, I've recently started using Proxmox, and it has been going well for me... well, until today when I experienced a power issue, and it wouldn't boot up anymore. I had several Windows Server instances running, and I thought everything was stored in the ZFS pool. However, it appears that only the main disk was being saved, and not the TPM and EFI. So, on the new Proxmox server, I created a new VM with a new EFI and TPM, along with the Windows disk, naively hoping it would boot up. I'm signing up for the training starting in October, but for now, I need to recover these servers. What should I do? In advance, thanks to this community!
