    im trying to migrate a physical server to proxmox.
    my proxmox host is running on a hp dl 580 g7 and my physical server is a Lenovo 3250 m3.

    The Lenovo runs windows server 2012 R2,
    I've tried multiple methods mentioned on the wiki ( https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Migration_of_servers_to_Proxmox_VE ) already.

    But all these methods fail as the VM won't boot anymore and only says "Booting from Hard Disk...".
    yesterday I've tried to load the image with Acronis true image and get the same issue.

    if i mount the image in another VM what already has windows installed as a secondary hard drive I can access the files just fine.


    am I missing a driver or something?

    Is the right boot device chosen for the VM in SeaBIOS? Can you post the VM config? (`qm config VMID`)

    boot: cdn
    bootdisk: ide0
    cores: 8
    ide0: SAN5_SSD:132/vm-132-disk-1.qcow2,size=72G
    memory: 8196
    name: testmigration
    net0: e1000=1A:9D:14:C5:51:EE,bridge=vmbr0
    numa: 0
    ostype: win8
    smbios1: uuid=b8201542-b12e-4cfe-acb0-e656705286fd
    sockets: 1


    config seems correct to me.

    The syntax "SAN5_SSD:132/vm-132-disk-1.qcow2,size=72G" looks odd to me. If you put the image in the base of the storage location, does it work normally?

    @SCG, this is exactly why you shouldn't open two threads for the same problem in both german and english forum. when it gets solved in the german one, it's harder to follow the solution for some people, since a translation isn't posted here. please refrain from doing this again.

    you should explain also in this thread how you solved your issue exactly, so other people can benefit too. and i'll ask you to mark this thread as [SOLVED] (by editing your first post)
