Proxmox Installation

Download the latest version of the ProxMox VE installer. At time of writing this document the latest version was 7.3.

I'm performing the creation of installation media on a Mac. The official installation guide is used as reference.

Convert the .iso file to .dmg format using the convert option of hdiutil.

hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o proxmox-ve_7.3-1.dmg proxmox-ve_7.3-1.iso

Insert your USB drive and list current devices, note down the disk that represents the external USB drive.

diskutil list

Unmount the disk, replace X with your disk number.

diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskX

Prepare the USB installation media, replace X with your disk number.

sudo dd if=proxmox-ve_*.dmg bs=1M of=/dev/rdiskX

This operation could take 2-3 minutes to complete.
