I'm attempting to clone a ubuntu host 14.04 server to a vm. I've tried this numerous times and I can't get the vm to boot.

Proxmox version 5.2-12
Clonezilla source full disk to sama (verified)
Clonezilla on proxmox vm
*Tried changing device type from virtio to IDE

I just get a hanging prompt:

Linux source is using LVM as shown /dev/sdb (sda is the clonezilla usb stick)

I'll try that when I get home, I can't run clonezilla remotely unfortunately. Could I try a live system? Any other things to try?
Also there is a warning on the end of clonezilla, "Target disk sda does not exist in the image saved from disk(s) "sdb". What does that mean?

I tried boot repair disk and it is saying that I'm running in legacy mode and must switch to EFI, how do I do this in proxmox?
