Hello, I've been trying to install Proxmox on a virtualbox vm. My problem is that after the installation and creating a vm, I can't see anything at the VNCClient.
It is supposed to be possible as it states this: https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Proxmox_VE_inside_VirtualBox.
Is there any specific configuration i need to manage? I've been trying multiple options but none worked. Everything works if I install it on physical hardware ofc. Fresh install, no custom configuration; but i would like to make it run on virtualbox.
On virtualbox, I enabled nested virtualization, and tested multiple video adapters/memories.

Same here, I tried with latest Proxmox version (8.0.3) and 7.4, no success. I use Virtualbox 7.0.8. I also made sure nested virtualization and all were all checked, so it shouldn't be the problem here. Could it be a Virtualbox problem ? I saw some posts saying Virtualbox 7 may have broken some things so we could give Virtualbox 6 a try here.

You are right, it worked with latest 6.1 Virtualbox version. I guess we should stay there for now, thanks for the idea!
