Hello,

I have attempted to create a KVM type virtual machine using Windows 2003, from CD or an ISO file. Both failed with the error shown on the screen capture image I am attaching. I have no problems installing Win2k, XP, and Windows 2008. I am using the latest Proxmox stable version with the most current updates applied. Has anyone else encountered this problem and how to solve it? Thanks.

just do a second boot and it will work. make sure you point the VM to boot again from the CD.

looks fine. are you sure that your ISO image is OK? can you boot other ISO images, e.g. Ubuntu?
