Windows - peculiarities of installation.

On the windows family OS, there are a few features that are important to remember.

windows does not support virtio disk format.

You can look for an image with integrated virtio drivers,

or write to our technical support to change the disk type to sata/ide.

IP address is configured manually at post-installation stage, dhcp is disabled, ip parameters are specified in the VPS confirmation letter.

windows does not know how to integrate with kvm, so the following buttons will NOT work: reboot/shutdown in the proxmox panel.
