corrupted Virtual Machine

Due to a power problem, the proxmox server was shut down by surprise.

After restarting it, all the virtual machines worked ok, except one with Ubuntu.
This starts in a loop, not knowing the content of the hard drive. the format of the disk is raw, and I have not been able to repair it.

I ask you to tell me how I could do it, since the 4 backups don't work either, I don't know why.
backups are vmz.zst files.

From already thank you very much

Thanks for your answer.
I already used an .ISO, but I couldn't recover the partition information. The LiveCD recognizes a partition, but cannot find the data within the partition.
Do you have any idea how to recover the data? the 4 backups that I have, are with the same problem.
Thank you..!!
