When a guest fails to start, the GUI doesn't present you with an immediate error. Below are some steps you can try:

  • SSH into the Proxmox VE server.
  • Review the contents of vzctl.log:
tail -50 /var/log/vzctl.log
  • Try starting the VM from the shell. This should reveal problems that are preventing the VM from booting.
    • Note: Change VMID to the guest VM's ID number:
qm start VMID
