[SOLVED] Can I use an exsisitng OS install with Proxmox?


Dec 1, 2019
Hi all, so first off I am brand new to Proxmox.
I have a server with ubuntu server installed on it. I am wanting to switch it out and install Proxmox onto another drive and then boot my exsisitng OS drive inside of Proxmox as a VM.
Is this possible?
Hi @Vaielab so I am trying the link you sent. I am currently having an issues as you can see in this picture

When I try and add the drive I get the error message that the config file does not exist. Where does the number 592 come from anyway?
