    Preparing for Installation

    Visit your server's (computer) BIOS and ensure that the server is able to boot from the thumbdrive as a first priority.

    Turning off UEFI / Boot Security

    Those with newer machines may run into the issue of boot security. As an example, an MSI gaming system boots utilizing UEFI protection. Basically, this computer will never boot from the thumbdrive and you may need to turn this off.

    From utilizing this system, we visited the following area and turned off Windows OS Support

    Next, we are finally able to select the USB thumdrive without UEFI.

    From here, we save and restart the machine.

    Promox Installation

    Once the system has rebooted, we should see the installation screen. Prior to installing, it's highly recommended to have your network cable plugged in so Proxmox can detect it prior.
