if anyone wants to share knowledge on inclusion of UEFI for virtual machines in PVE?
Is it possible?
Is it possible?
args: -pflash /var/lib/vz/images/7012/OVMF.fd
HI,It's working fine (at least for the linux distributions I tried).
Download the precompiled OVMF package from http://www.tianocore.org/ovmf/ and unzip it (assuming your VMID is 7012) in your VM folder such that you have
root@proxmox4 /var/lib/vz/images/7012 > ls -l /var/lib/vz/images/7012/
-rw------- 1 root root 130 Feb 10 2014 BUILD_INFO
-rw------- 1 root root 4210 Feb 10 2014 LICENSE
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 1048576 Feb 10 2014 OVMF.fd
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 10573 Feb 10 2014 README
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 34365309440 Okt 9 16:07 vm-7012-disk-1.qcow2
Then add the following line to /etc/pve/qemu-server/7012.conf
args: -bios /var/lib/vz/images/7012/OVMF.fd
Then boot up the machine and enjoy UEFI. As I stated earlier, it may not be working for other environments than linux, you have to try.
Hi, Thanks for your quick reply.Don't even try. Update to PVE 5.3 and it'll be possible and easier to do.
WHY?I am intrested to test on PVE 3.4 before going to 5.3.
all my current servers are running on PVE3.4, suddenly I can't upgrade to 5.3 now. For testing purpose Please share me the ovmf package & steps to enable UEFI for my win10 VM.WHY?
Your graphics card is many years newer than your operating system, just upgrade to the newest version.
Not even the official support will help you with such an old system. Both PVE 3.x and PVE 4.x are already End-of-line (EOL) for at least half a year: https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/proxmox-ve-support-lifecycle.35755/
