Install Proxmox VE 3 failed


I installed Proxmox VE 3 on VirtualBox 4.2.6.
However, the installation process encountered error. The message is : "command 'chroot /target dpkg --force-confold --configure -a' failed with exit code 1 at /usr/bin/proxinstall line 177"

I pressed "CTRL + ATL + F2" to view details and found out other error messages: "Errors were encountered while processing:
command 'chroot / target dpkg - force-confold - configure-a' failed with exit code 1 at / usr / bin / proxinstall line 177. "

In the installation, I selected "Country" to "United States" option.
But it could not solve the problem to finish installation.

Could you help me to install Proxmox VE 3?


It's work!
Now I know that I have to set RAM more than 512MB to install Proxmox.
Thank you very much.


Where should I set more than 512MB. I have phisically installed 16GB.

He was installing the server in a virtual machine. You can set the ammount of ram on the virtual machine configuration. If you are not installing straight to a VM but on a server you don't have to do anything.
