Sorry my fault. It was the Debian Jessie howto and not Wheezy. Attached 
are some logs. Let me know if you need some more.

As you may see in syslog i'm calling a finish.sh script which should 
install the PVE and afterwards the Puppet-agent. The Puppet-agent gets 


# Install packages for Proxmox PVE
/usr/bin/apt-get -y -f remove os-prober
sleep 2
/usr/bin/apt-get update
/usr/bin/apt-get -f -y install
/usr/bin/apt-get dist-upgrade
/usr/bin/apt-get -y --force-yes proxmox-ve ssh ksm-control-daemon 
open-iscsi systemd-sysv


apt-get update
apt-get install -y puppet

cat > /etc/puppet/puppet.conf << EOF
