Proxmox 7.3-3 and macos Ventura install failing, no iso on fs0/fs1/fs2


Feb 4, 2023

I am new to proxmox so most likely I am doing something simple wrong!

I am installed proxmox 7.3-3 on my machine: ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS dual Xeon E5 20 cores with 128 Gb RAM and 1T NVMe drive.

Now I followed Nick Sherlock installation guide for installing Ventura using Ventura.iso from original Ventura .pkg file and OpenCore v19 .iso.
Both .iso are located into /var/lib/vz/template/iso folder.

Once I finish the configuration of the "vm".conf file, I set in Options the OpenCore19.iso to boot first and then the ventura.iso.

At this point I go to the vm console where is the button Start Now.
I click it and after couple of screens on booting I get to the option of the UEFI shell and Reset NVRAM but there is no Ventura button installation like the guide.

I saw that others clicked on the UEFI button and get to a console with Shell> command line.
Above I have FS2: FS0: FS1: and BLKs 0 1 3 5.
If I go into FS2: I get to a directory containing EFI
FS0: does not contain anything
FS1: contains to directories: .fseventsd and .HFS+ Private Directory Data

So I cannot run the command: Services\Library\CoreService\boot.efi like it was mentioned by others.

To me looks like I cannot see for some reason the ventura.iso

BTW I have the VM running in the same location as the 2 iso.
So I have 105 VM, local and local-lvm. I can see the local contains the ISO Images.

Something to do with my motherboard bios? Not sure, I have virtualization on and proxmox is working so not sure.

Any suggestions? I was working on it all day and my impression was to have it running in 1 hr!!!
