Check the boot order of the VM 107 i.e., go to PVE Web UI Datacenter->pve->107->Options Boot Order and then check the system disk to boot from. Note, you have to stop and start the VM if it's already started.
sorry was my fault the iso i was using was corrupt and when i tried windows didnt hit any-key to start becuase normally on a fresh install it will just go on its own. :rolleyes:
thank you moayad for answering my question! :)
