[PVE-User] Proxmox VE 4.2 and Windows 7

Hi everyone,

A while ago, to build a continuous integration system, I installed some
Linux, OSX and Windows VM under Proxmox 3.2 and the installations went
fine (Windows 7 32 and 64 bits). Now, under Proxmox VE 4.2, my VM are
still running/booting fine.

Recently, I tried to add/install a new Windows VM from scratch (using
the installation DVD). I tried with both Windows 7 32 bits and Windows
7 64 bits but the installation always get stuck during the DVD startup
and does not go farther than "Starting Windows"...

Is there a known issue with the last kvm (QEMU emulator version
pve-qemu-kvm_2.5-16, Linux pve 4.4.8-1-pve) ?

Does Windows VM need special configuration? I cannot remember exactly
how I did it under Proxmox 3.2 but I tried different configuration
(processors, etc) without success.

Any idea?

Thank's for your help !
