Hi

I want to install Proxmox V6.2 on a mac mini 2011 (Core i5,2.5ghz, 16go RAM, GPU AMD RADEON).
I start on proxmox cd (made with iso file) and the startup stop after a while with messages shown in the attached file.

I visit the url given, but the page send a 404 error.

What is wrong whis this? How to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance

PS: I have installed proxmox on mac mini 2009 (core2duo) without any problems, few months ago.

Hi

Thanks. I don't need wireless, the mac will be connected with ethernet. How can I disable the WLAN?

Life is to short to waste time with slow computers...
OK, it's very helpful :)
Then this macmini is more than enough for my needs. It works actually on macminni 2009 well, and I don't understand why I was able to install proxmox on the 2009 model, and not working with 2011 model, and I don't know how to fix.

You're right, this is what I've done.
Install buster, then install b43-firmware, and linux-firmware-nonfree too. And all works fine :)

During the install, I setup LVM like this:
- create volume group named pve (/dev/sda3)
- create logical volume named root (ext4, /)
- create logical volume named swap (swap)

Then install Proxmox and reboot. Then I created lvm-thin:
lvcreate -L 422G -T -n data pve

And add lvm-thin to storage, and recreate network interface (linux-bridge). I can now restore VM from backups.
