I'm a newbie here but I would like to understand how to install ubuntu or centOS on my VM created by KVM (in proxmox). During creation, I've set

Linux 3.X/2.6 Kernel (l26) 

in sheet OS and

Do not use any media

in CD/DVD sheet. Now, in proxmox console for this VM, there is : "No bootable device". This is normal but how to install one without having acces to USB or CD/DVD reader...

Make an iso image of a specific distribution ?

Thx for your help

As I know you can put ISO image here


Then you can install guest OS from web interface.

I did not work with Promox but according to a common VM deployment process: just download distribution iso image you like and attach it as a virtual CD/DVD during VM deployment.
