Hello, I need help
I have instal and run VM CHR mikrotik with disk 1GB. Now I wont run The Dude. Dude's data i want save on second disk. How correctly add secondary disk to VM?
First you have to properly add a second disk from within proxmox. Problem is that the CHR VM is a bit picky about which disk controller to use. You can either use an ide disk, or use LVM. If you do use LVM, in options select to use the VMware PVSCSI as the SCSI controller. IIRC, I could not use any of the virtio scsi controllers here.

After booting with this second hard disk, enter the CHR shell and enter the proper commands that will utilise the disk, see:

Just an update for anyone that comes here through search results, as the information here is outdated.
CHR has virtio drivers now, so both HDD controller and network can use them.
