Hi everyone,

After changing the motherboard everything boots fine except for the KVM does
not pick IP from DHCP. VMs are fine. I tried to lunch another KVM fresh but
I get this:

May 21 13:59:41 pvedaemon 18895 starting VM 14 on node 0 (localhost)
May 21 13:59:41 qm 18896 VM 14 start

failed with exit code 1
May 21 13:59:41 pvedaemon 18895 VM 14 start failed -

What could be going wrong? *"exit code 1"*
I am also very interested to know why my KVM doesn't pick IP. vmbr0 is still
check marked and good. I see an eth5 added that doesn't show up on list when
I add a NIC. My vmbr1 has always been off anyhow just like eth5 is now.
