hi,

i have troubles installing Windows Server 2012 R2 on an actual PVE System.
Every time the VM boots from the win2k12r2 iso i get the following error: (immediately after the windows logo appears the first time)
Code:
Your PC needs to restart.
Please hold down the power button.
Error Code: 0x0000005D
as soon as i change the cpu type from "default (kvm64)" to e.g. "sandy bridge" it boots right through to the install-menu.

i this on your radar so this could work with the default cpu type in the near future?

Code:

args : -cpu kvm64,+cx16 seems not helping,
But Windows 2012 R2 (
SW_DVD5_Windows_Svr_Std_and_DataCtr_2012_R2_64Bit_English_Core_MLF_X19-05182.ISO) is booting fine with CPU set to qemu64

are there any possible future problems with changing CPU to qemu64 ?
or lack of performance or any other cons ?

Same for me. After fights with kvm64 and SandyBridge, qemu64 was the solution. (FR_FR version)

Will be glad to read comments about performance.

Hi,
I would like to known if" -cpu kvm64,+lahf_lm "


fix the problem or not, to make an offical patch for proxmox.

Thanks !
That seems to have done the trick for me spirit, I:

- Created a fresh 20012 R2 VM

- Verified it was continually rebooting on startup from the iso

- Stopped it

- added "args : -cpu kvm64,+lahf_lm" to the .conf file.

- Its now letting me going through the installer.

Thanks for the fix.

It fully installed and is working fine.
Spice Drivers won't install (unsupported version), but I guess that is a problem for redhat.

Hello,
Today I've tried to install Windows Server 2012R2 Standard x64 on my Proxmox server and even trying flags mentioned earlier I still get bootloop with 0x000000C4 error (I'm not 100% sure if it is always the same error code, because it's rebooting so quickly :/ ).
My setup is HP DL360G5 with Xeon 5120 (2x 1.86GHz) and 10GB of RAM.
Here's my config:
Code:
root@proxmox:~# cat /etc/pve/qemu-server/107.conf
args: -cpu qemu64,+sep,+cx16,+lahf_lm
cores: 2
ide0: local:107/vm-107-disk-1.qcow2,format=qcow2,size=80G
ide2: local:iso/winsrv.iso,media=cdrom
memory: 1024
name: WinSrv2k12R2
ostype: win8
sockets: 1
Here's my pveversion log:
Code:

UPDATE:
After changing cpu type to host it stops on 0x0000005d error code :/

UPDATE and SOLVED:
I've realized that I had No-Execute Memory Protection disabled in BIOS and that caused Bootloop. I've enabled it and... christmas came earlier this year ;D

I've enabled it in my host's BIOS (it was disabled on my HP DL360 G5 server :/).

Ah, I thought you meant in the guest. Weird that not having it set on the host caused this problem in the guest.
