Proxmox 8 and Windows 10 VM


Aug 15, 2020
I recently upgraded to version 8.
I want to install a Windows 10 VM, but this is not working any more.

I can go through the Windows installation process but when it comes to partition and format the windows disk I get stuck.
Altough I configured a 80 GB disk for this VM Windows does not recognize this disk.

At this point I got stuck.

Does anyone know how to overcome this?
If you use VirtIO SCSI for the virtual hdd don’t forget to mount the recent driver iso as a DVD drive and point Windows to the appropiate driver on that drive (vioscsi -> W10).
