i just managed

- to update my igel m340c bios for being capable of uefi boot (which is required to hack the bios to enable svm/vmx) via dumping and copying the bios from another m340c with more recent bios
- to install proxmox 7.2 with zfs/zstd compression onto that (4 gb msata ssd, 2 gb ram)
- to downsize proxmox memory requirements a little bit
- to install a debian 11 vm and have it up and running with ssh
- to still have free space of 1gb

think that's the most crazy thing i ever did with proxmox or some thin client so far
