ProxmoxVE 2.3 - LiveCD stops after boot menue
I am using Proxmox VE 2.3 on a Fujitsu TX120 S3 with Intel Xeon processor, 4GB RAM and 500GB SATA RAID1.
I installed ProxmoxVE without any problems and I tried to install the latest pfsense 2.0.3 release and pfsense 2.1 amd64 snapshot (LiveCD .iso).
The VM starts up but after the boot menu it stops. No matter if I use "Without ACPI" oder something else. What I can do I can use option 7 for the command shell.
On another server hardware with ProxmoxVE pfsense installs so it seems to be a problem with the hardware.
Any ideas where to look or what to change ?
Thank your for your help!
Could this be the fix ?
unfortunately I still get the same error with April-29 snapshot.
Any idea what to change or test ?
Looks like I found the problem.
I must disable "KVM Hardware Virtualization" on ProxmoxVE. I thought that the Intel Xeon E1220v2 can do all the Virtualization tecniques but it looks like it does not.
Unfortunately it's again me…
I did some further tests - I installed Windows Server 2008R2 x64 on the same hardware as a VM. On this machine I can use "KVM Hardware Virtualization" enabled. Windows installs without problems. Further I can use the VirtIO drivers for NIC, HDD and ballooning.
On pfsense 2.1 I modified the /boot/loader.conf.local like described here in the wiki:
When running the following commands I get the same output as described on the wiki:
So the modules seems to be running, ballooning seems to work and the HDD driver seems to work. Even if the if_vtnet.ko is loaded I cannot use my NICs as VirtIO. If I revert back to E1000 on proxmox it is working. (Remember, on the same Proxmox Server I can use VirtIO for NICs on Windows).
I followed the same pfsense doc instructions on another ProxmoxVM with different server hardware and all worked.
So my questions are:
Did I something wrong or could it be that FreeBSD 8.3 does not support the new server hardware I use and so some things like VirtIO for NICs is not supported ? Or is it something with Proxmox?
I appreciate any help or hint :-)
