I'm new user Proxmox.

I trying install Windows 2012 r2 on VM.
Following the tutorial:

i made VM:
root@pve:~# qm config 100
bootdisk: virtio0
cores: 20
ide0: local:iso/virtio-win-0.1.164.iso,media=cdrom,size=362130K
ide2: local:iso/9600.17050.WINBLUE_REFRESH.140317-1640_X64FRE_SERVER_EVAL_EN-US-IR3_SSS_X64FREE_EN-US_DV9.ISO,media=cdrom
memory: 194560
name: WindowsServer
net0: virtio=F2:53:1B:69:47:BC,bridge=vmbr0
numa: 0
ostype: win8
scsihw: virtio-scsi-pci
smbios1: uuid=7cd84469-93c2-4e10-8c44-e69c7120a097
sockets: 2
virtio0: local-lvm:vm-100-disk-0,cache=writeback,size=300G
vmgenid: 142e7aed-40ef-4689-baf3-603417dc1bb8

and start that.

I have not any drivers on windows setup (I tried to load drivers from mounted virtio ISO /balloon/2k12R2/amd64/ - VirtIO Balloon Driver - but this not solve problem)
