ProxMox 6.0.4 - help needed

I followed the ProxMox setup thread by Benson here: 



I had to set the SeaBios option to get it to boot as I had the same issue found here:


Where it couldn't find the boot device.  I attached my settings below.


And Options:



I then added in my PCI Sata controller and hooked up two unformated drives.  I only added the controller that doesn't control the ProxMox drive.  Adding both causes things to hang.


Now when I start my VM I can see in the console that it is trying to boot from disk.  There is just hangs forever.  My boot order is CDROM, none, none.  Why is it trying to boot from disk instead of my USB?


If I go to the console after starting, and hit ESC for the ProxMox boot menu, I can then select the USB drive.  It is number 3 after the two hdd.  How do I make this the default?

I would suggest don't passthrough the SATA controller first, then set VM BIOS from "SeaBIOS" to "OVMF" and enable Unraid UEFI boot mode.

After success booting Unraid, then try passthrough the SATA controller.

I figured out that I didn't check the UEFI boot mode when I made my unRaid USB drive and that is probably why I couldn't get UEFI to boot and had to revert to SeaBIOS.  I'll remake the USB stick and try again.


UPDATE: Yes checking the UEFI button in the UnRaid download tool does in fact let me boot in UEFI mode and it boots properly off the USB drive in this manner.

I'm currently trying to get the GPU to pass through.  Has anyone done this successfully?


I have gotten it working when I boot straight into UnRaid using Plex, but I cannot get it to work with using ProxMox.


I followed this guide, but did not include downloading the ROM.

Still looking for the right way to do this.

Not sure if this will help, but I can currently see the GPU with lspci -v, but for some reason I still get:

I've searched for this error, but didn't ever find an answer.
