[PVE-User] Adding VEs and containers to 7.4

Greetings to listers,
I have installed 7.4 VE and am finding no success in installing guest
images to what looks like a valid install, using the web gui at port 8006.
Specifically, the best I can do is create a vm using a windows 7 dvd in
the node dvd drive and start an install session. That runs for a while
then stalls while I watch in a console. After that using console and other
ways to stop, reset, etc the vm so I can remove it are ignored, though the
gui is still up and not frozen. Similar symptoms trying various Linux
distro dvds, from either iso image or burned install disks. I also fumbled
around until I managed to upload an iso from laptop to a second internal
hdd disk but I can’t find a way to load it to a new vm.
Goal is homelab and a separate bookworm as VMs. So what I obviously need
is docs on definitions and caveats for each gui option in the web gui.
Examples: how to create a vm from qcow2 image. Functionally what does QEMU
checkbox do since I get console either way? I expect command line
maneuvers will be required.
I have read the current wiki and tried help screens but haven’t found
anything that gives me a detailed recipe. I would also like to use a
three x 500 GB disk zfs raid but can’t find when or where I do the zfs
setup. No install option on install except ext 4 partitons. Dell XPS
8500 i7 16 GB ram 4 physical / 8 threads. Allocating 2 cores with
default lvms 2048 memory per vm.
Tnx in advance
