Proxmox just restarts (full restart into BIOS) when trying to boot the DVD.

I get to choose boot mode (install proxmox, proxmox debug etc.) and after a little wile it restarts. The last things that are on screen is shown on the attached image.

Hi Hermonella,

Yeah, I've had similar stuff happen to me.. for me the issue was both a DVD with some surface damage in just the wrong place, and also a failing USB DVD drive.

Does this issue happen with other hardware (try what ever spare PC/Laptop you have lying around)?

Could you burn yourself a new DVD (with a burner which you know is reliable?
