[SOLVED] Virtual Machine Screen Start Glitch

Feb 27, 2021
Bios Verison 2.9.1

2 Xeon Processors

  • 3.2 GHz (E5 2667 v3)
  • 8 Cores x2 = 16 Cores

Dell PMR79 Dual SD Card Reader Module

  • 2x 32GB SD Cards Raid 1 IDSDM
  • Proxmox installed

Situation: I was in the middle of installing windows 10 on a ZFS pool (3x 3TB 2.5” CMR drives) VM drive. I was about 57% when everything went buggar.

Data: at 57% the zfs pool failed indicating 1 drive was removed. I checked the server see the blinking orange light and took it out and reinserted. Now the zfs pool is all green. Reboot and reslivered. Error shows data corruption. I deleted the VM and re-installed but now when the VM starts so I can begin win 10 install again I see pixelated screen. As soon as this begins my other VM installed on a 64 GB USB thumb drive (not in zfs) fails to start. Same screen glitch.

I checked the ZFS pool all is green and the other VM is not on that drive and that is now failing.

What should I do? How do I fix?
