I want to configure University servers for out Lab environment and I planed to use proxmox as hypervisor. But at the begining there was a problem with installation. I used dd tool as explained in administrators gudie's book, but when I boot, there is nothing, it seems server can not boot from usb. I saw that the BIOS is updated (for that server there the last firmware update is from 2012 year). I tryed to make bootable usb from rufus and server started installtion of proxmox, it gave me the first page. I have enter "Install Proxmox VE" and after a minute server shows me the picture belowe:

any suggestion will help me..

It looks like the server you're using is not in the Certified hardware list of Ubuntu (our kernel is Ubuntu based), so it looks like it might get problematic. You can try some other methods such as mounting the ISO through remote management if the USB or CD-ROM doesn't work.
