Smart decision. I used a VM to install Proxmox VE to probe the last 
updates and restore the GRUB loader, because I was select the wrong boot 
device and my real Proxmox crashed on next boot. (Oh, My God!!!)

I wrote a litle manual of it yesterday and today I fix my real Proxmox 
box. :) All work fine now.

Long live to GNU/Linux, Debian and Proxmox. Hehehehe.
