This is on latest proxmox (4.4-5/c43015a5):
Created a machine, set OS type windows 2008, rest of the options
default. Then changed bios to ovmf, and added an uefi disk.
Then booting a windows2008 iso fails after the UEFI screens: there
appear a few corrupted atifacts in the left top corner and thats all.
Switching back to SEABios and everything works as expected.
I have read this bug report:
And from what I understand from the above link, I should be able to boot
win2008 with uefi on qemu with the correct settings.
Alexandre Derumier created the following patch in november on this subject:
So I hoped that this would work by now. However it does not. :-(
Anyone with suggestions? I would like to virtualise a machine that boots
uefi and runs windows2008 enterprise. Is that really impossible?
Hopeing for some good clues! :-)
Best regards and all the best for 2017 to all!
