Any imported or imaged vm's never leave "booting from Hard Disk"

I'm moving from VMWare to Proxmox and home to see how it compares to VMWare.

Everything is painless so far except this issue. If I import (using qm import disk) or if I use clonezilla to restore a known good image the vm never boots. I've changed nearly every setting possible on the vm to make it boot but no luck.

I'm running Proxmox 8.

Here is the vm details currently. Can anyone point me in the right direction here? Thanks!
