Hi.

I'm doing a fresh install of Proxmox VE 6.0, from an usb pen drive.

The error shows every time, even creating the boot disk using dd, imageUSB, Etcher, etc.

The PC is an Intel NUC6CAYH, with the lasted UEFI version.

Thanks.

Hi.

Normally the installer should log something like:
Code:
"testing device '$path' for CDROM ID"

for each block devices which is marked as either removable, or is of type "iso9660", but yours logged none here.

Can you boot in Debug mode and check if there's a 'skipped-devs.txt' file and execute `blkid`:
Code:
cat skipped-devs.txt
blkid

I did as you asked and the screenshots are attached below.

And you sure did also try:
Code:
dd if=proxmox-ve_6.0-1.iso of=/dev/sdx conv=sync

(/dev/sdx naturally replaced with your USB drive)

I followed the instruction on the wiki: https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Install_from_USB_Stick With no success, either.

Thanks.

Hmm, strange. Do you have a linux machine available? If yes, how does it "sees" the USB pen drive? (maybe do also a blkid command there) something like TYPE=iso9660 should be visible somewhere...

Also, did you checked the SHA256 sum of the downloaded ISO? it should be the same as the http://download.proxmox.com/iso/ SHA256SUM file notes (you can to a sha256sum proxmox-ve_6.0-1.iso)

Else maybe switch USB drive, we had some bad apples reported on that front too, sometimes in the past...

This is what I get:

$ lsblk /dev/sde
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sde 8:64 1 14,7G 0 disk
├─sde1 8:65 1 238K 0 part
├─sde2 8:66 1 2,8M 0 part
├─sde3 8:67 1 738,6M 0 part
└─sde4 8:68 1 300K 0 part

And, yes, the ISO file is fine.

This seems to me to be unrelated to the USB device, as with it I installed last weekend one Debian 10 and another Manjaro 18.

Thanks, Lamprecht.

The partions look OK, but please post the blkid output too, it returns the TYPE which we explicitly check...

And you did a sync command before pulling the ISO out?

As workaround you could then go the https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Install_Proxmox_VE_on_Debian_Buster route..
