Hi guys trying to have a look at proxmox ve for Linux ha and (kvm) virtualisation I downloaded the ISO created a vm with 3 cores 4gb ram and 3 vnics well above the minimum requirements I said use Debian 6 64bit as the vm type but the vm hung when it couldn't mount the ISO from either my client or the datastrore. According to their website it can be run like this for testing.

I wonder also if there a way to change the ISO to an ova

It's not possible to convert an ISO to an OVA.

also try changing the VM requirements to a single vCPU.

Please provide links you have tried, and we will lab it here.

and from there
Testing Proxmox VE as a VM
Proxmox VE can be installed as a guest on all common used desktop virtualization solutions. But note, KVM will not work in almost all cases - only if your software allows nested virtualization (experimental feature).

OpenVZ containers works well.

well I didn't know but 5.1 can give the guest hardware support

ESXi 5.1

Virtualized HV is fully  supported for virtual hardware version 9 VMs on hosts that support  Intel VT-x and EPT or AMD-V and RVI. To enable virtualized HV, use the web client and navigate to the processor settings screen. Check the  box next to  "Expose hardware-assisted virtualization to the guest operating system."  This setting is not available under the traditional C# client.
