Hi guys.

When I try to install PVE on my device I get the error "Unable to get device for partition 1 on device /dev/mmcblk0".

I've tried selecting ext4, xfs and zfs, but nothing worked.

I'm installing from a 16GB USB 3.0 and the device is a Teclast TbooK 16 Power with a 64GB Samsung eMMC.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi,

Proxmox VE is not made for install on USB/eMMC/CFCard or equal.
Proxmox VE have to be installed on a SSD/HDD. The OS will write some GB logs per day.
A USB/eMMC/CFCard or equal will not last long with this many writing.

Hi Wolfgang and thanks for the reply.

Too bad. This device is just lying around and I was hoping to play around with PVE on it.

Could I connect an SSD via USB though and install PVE on that?
