I follow this tutorial ( to use Vmware VGA with KVM Windows Guests.

The vmware vga driver is installed on Windows, but I can't select "vmvga" into Proxmox's interface. I can just choose "default", "Standard VGA" and "Cirrus Logic GD5446".

I tried command "kvm" and "qm" but nothing.

Looking at a Proxmox forum post and info on vmware vga setting in KVM: you might try editing your conf file for the machine, e.g. /etc/qemu-server/101.conf, and add a line

args: -vga vmware
