Click the Select File… button in the pop-up window and select the ISO you want to upload from your local drive. Then click the upload button.
How long it takes for your ISO to upload depends on your network speed and ISO size. After the upload is complete, you are ready to create your VM in Proxmox.
Step 2 – Create a VM in Proxmox VE
To create a VM in Proxmox VE, click Create VM at the top of the page.

After setting the CPU settings, click Next. On the Memory tab, select the amount of RAM you want to allocate to your VM.
Click Next to go to the Network tab. For network information, please check the article How to connect a virtual machine to the Internet using Proxmox VE.

Step 3 – Installing the operating system in Proxmox VE
Operating system installation time will vary depending on the operating system you choose. However, you can easily start the installation in the Proxmox VE user interface.
