    I have a windows 10 computer that I'd like to keep the current hard drive with Windows 10 installed, add an SSD for Proxmox, then utilize the current Windows 10 installed on the original hard drive within Proxmox, is this possible?

    Hi,

    Yes, but you may lose your license because windows will detect a new HW.

    You can pass through a disk to a VM like this.

    1.) idetify your disk
    Code:
    lsblk
    
    2.) create your VM Config (On the GUI) and remove after creation the vdisk.
    see https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/pve-admin-guide.html#qm_virtual_machines_settings
    3.) Add the disk to the created VM.
    The disk path you see in the output of lsblk
    Code:
    qm set 100  --scsi0 <path to the disk>
