I've installed a proxmox and I want to create some Windows VM's.
The issue is that when I want to install the Windows Server OS with Fujitsu images I got the following error:
fujitsu_image.jpg
From what I know those settings are stored somehow on SMBIOS.
Can anyone tell me what can I do to make those images to work also on proxmox.

Yes, normally you can. In the Webinterface, VM Options panel there is an entry called "SMBIOS settings", there you can insert the magic data required by Fujitsu
 
What are the chances.

We are a Fujitsu shop and run a windows VM as a kiosk ontop of proxmox with the IGD passed through. We didn't want to purchase new licences so instead we are using the Fujitsu recovery media to install the OS within a VM.

Ive never hit that installer issue, but I do know we pass through some important items via smbios1. We pass through the physical UUID, Manufacturer, product and serial number. Maybe thats all you need?

adamb, thanks for your hints.
It seems that it was enough to add on the MANUFACTURER textbox FUJITSU and now i’m able to install windows server.
Thanks again
