Hello everyone, in this article, I am going to quickly show you how to create a Proxmox USB Installer from Windows 10. Proxmox is a great operating system for virtualization. With this operating system, you can run multiple operating systems simultaneously. Not like VMware Workstation or Oracle Virtualbox, the virtual machine in Proxmox can perform better with the GPU passthrough supports. Not only the PCI-Express devices that can be passthrough, hard disk, processor, and USB ports can be passthrough to the virtual machine for better performance. For more information, please visit the Proxmox website below.
