Win 10 Stuck on logo on install


Mar 15, 2017

I'm trying to install Windows 10 Fall Creator (Downloaded from Microsoft site) on Proxmox 5.1 running ZFS.

For some reason when booting from the ISO I can see the Windows logo but nothing happend It stays there for 30 sec then the VM reboot.

I'm pretty sure this is related to my hardware but my tests have been in vain. I'm using Host type for CPU (real CPU is an AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 8435)

I have multiples Windows 7 machines that work fine.

Any idea what might cause this ?

There is a Windows/KVM bug on Kernel 4.13.
