Additionally, we also provide a "howto" for installation on an Debian 6 Squeeze or Debian 7 Wheesy or Debian 8 Jessie

Download the ISO image and move it to a USB media, see Install from USB Stick. Or just burn a CD.

Minimum requirements, for evaluation

  • CPU: 64bit (Intel EMT64 or AMD64), Intel VT/AMD-V capable CPU/Mainboard (for KVM Full Virtualization support)
  • RAM: 1 GB RAM
  • Hard drive
  • One NIC

Start the installation

  • Just press 'Enter' to start the installation (for custom partition settings, see Debugging Installation#Boot options)
  • The installer supports partitions greater 2 TB (using GUID Partition Table, GPT)

Update your Proxmox VE Server to latest available version

In order to get new features and all security updates and bugfixes you should always update a new ISO install to the latest available packages via GUI updater or via CLI (apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade)
