[PVE-User] Fwd: Fails to start KVM with error code 1 - what does that mean?

So, I did a fresh install of the latest Proxmox and everything is just fine.
But yet again an .iso of PBXinaFlash does not start and it gives me the same
exact error. Someone should be able to decipher this. Here it is:

s1:/var/lib/vz/template/cache# qm start 19
Invalid ID
start failed: command '/usr/bin/kvm -monitor
unix:/var/run/qemu-server/19.mon,server,nowait -vnc
unix:/var/run/qemu-server/19.vnc,password -pidfile
/var/run/qemu-server/19.pid -daemonize -usbdevice tablet -name
PBX_AptsInternational -smp sockets=1,cores=1 -nodefaults -boot
menu=on,order=cad -vga cirrus -tdf -k en-us -drive
-m 2048 -netdev
-device e1000,mac=FE:FE:E0:88:CD:D8,netdev=vlan0d0 -id 19 -cpuunits 1000'
failed with exit code 1

The .iso is hosted here if you can test it:

This actually worked with an older version of Proxmox but after I upgraded
or something has changed with the .iso and it's not starting anymore.

Please try this and give me your feedback. I also tried the CentOS 5.5
version and the same issue. The .iso developers are telling me that they can
run this fine on their Proxmox.
