[SOLVED] Nothing to boot error with debian 9.7.0 (fixed)


Jan 24, 2019
Hello everybody, I get the following error message when I try to create a vm with Debian 9_7_0.
Nothing to boot: No such file or directory (...2d03e13b)
No more network devices.
With 9_6_0 everything works without problems.
Can someone tell me what the mistake is or what I am doing wrong?
Have already tried netinstall and full image.
Many Thanks
Maybe your ISO is corrupt, please re-check your ISO download.
Did you check the SHA256SUMS of your ISO?

Your pveversion -v?

Your "qm config VMID"?

And yes, checksum is correct (I checked it in windows before upload to proxmox, but I uploaded it 2 times)
Oh man :(
Mistake found...
I had the wrong architectur. arm64 works not for my Nuc with intel i5
So I took amd64 from debian and it worked.
Many sorry for this - my mistake.

Thanks a lot!
