I use proxmox virtualisation platform on a HP proliant gen 6 server.
It is a debian distribution with KVM in the bottom.
Should be pretty standard and worsk well with all other software using iso images and qcow2.
I am hitting the same dead end all the time and can not get past it.
hwdb.bin does not exist, please run udevadm hwdb --update
Since syslog nor the installation console provides little information I also added a serial console.
I do get a bit more information there from the intramfs prompt. sorry not in from of the computer but I'm sure you know the first boot prompt if mounting the disk fails.
I can list /dev and procs etc and see that the UID is not 100% accurate and needless to say since there is no disk the /boot/abc123.img can not be loaded.
I'm stuck here and am running out of ideas but was hoping you could shed some light in why it is not working properly.
I've also downloaded the ova file and converted it to qcow2 just to verify it was something in that specific kvm bundle.
Appreciate any hints as to how I could get this working.

I should have responded as I got the assistance I needed.
Got a few routers up and running with some routing protocols.
I wish BGP flowspec was better integrated as I saw some API script with some iptables injections.
Otherwise it has been running well and no major problems yet.
The default installation using SCSI and virtio was not playing nice and since I got the word that KVM defaults to IDE I used this installation options for the qxow2 image.
So this was the 1,5 day headache and solution is just too simple it makes you look stupid.
Thanks for the mindshare though, appreciated.
