Hello Matt,

How can you open a fault ticket. Seems like we have exactly same issue but no answer from anyone.

Just to update this. I ended up having the PSU replaced on the server, and it's stable and running Proxmox now.

Proxmox installed after I opened a fault ticket last night. It's been installed 3 hours and the server has reloaded itself 3 times so far

Only thing I can see in the logs is relating to errors with RAM

The server I was installing it on expires on the 23rd, and I'm not going to renew it. I'll just get another one in a couple of months. Wonder if the previous owner made some bios changes before handing it back to be reprovisioned?

Edit: I'm also not going to pay 26 for KVM to mess about with the bios on a server I've only had for 2 months.

Actually I got a helpful response from support a few days after I submitted a ticket - they said it was probably the BIOS settings on the host. However, I'd ended up building a vmware setup (ugh) in the meantime so I haven't had a chance to test. I would submit a ticket and ask them to check your host config.

Good luck.

I still can't get the Proxmox template to install correctly. Is anyone from SYS/OVH looking at the issue with the template?

MattW

I had the exact same thing. It did install once, but after 4 hours started to power cycle itself continually.

Hi guys,

I've tried building my new server with the proxmox installation template but the process hangs at step 5/8 ("Setting up fresh system"). Eventually the admin panel resets itself leaving the host with no OS. Anyone got it to work?

I've emailed support but no reply after several hours. An automatic intervention was scheduled but the guy just rebooted the host into rescue mode and closed the intervention (!).

Alternatively, if anyone has a link to a method to install proxmox over the wheezy image that works on SYS, that would be great. The official proxmox wiki has a guide but swapping to the proxmox kernel stops the host from booting.

Thanks.
