Hi,

i'm having proxmox running inside a dell t30 for quite a while. Everything great.
Now I would like to experiment with some configurations regarding zfs, which i would like to trial before in an experiential VirtualBox-Guest.

But unfortunately i'm not cabable to install proxmox inside a guest, because i have some kind of resolution problems which prevent me to follow the setup....

As you can see i'm stuck at this place unable to change resolution and going on with the setup.... My Host is running debian 10 and virtualbox is up to date. Does anyone knows this issue and has some advice? I've different vm's running on this host but never experienced this kind of problem while installing vms...

Kind regards

Hi,

Why not try with kvm/qemu, virt-manager on your debian host? Then you also get to use almost the same mechanisms as proxmox.
Or just install proxmox on your host and do a nested install.

For a while i ran virtualbox and KVM (virtmanager) side-by-side on my laptop, they don't bite each other, as long as they don't run vm's at the same time. Now I just discarded Virtualbox, virt-manager and kvm/qemu have matured a lot.

Thank you for your reply. To be honest: i haven't any experience with kvm/qemu or virt-manager yet. But i'll have a look at them and report back :)

Thank you again :)... Just installed virt-manager and everything works easily! No need to hassle with virtualbox any more :)!
