Question

Creating Droplet from custom image (from a proxmox vm)

Hi, I’m new to DigitalOcean. I want to migrate from proxmox vms, and so I create .vmdk files from proxmox backups. I uploaded into Space (making the link public) and then I Upload the image using a Spaces link, the image is created ok. But when creating a Droplet using this Image, all seems ok, but I can’t see and volume created from this image, I open the console and the vm it waiting for a disk to boot. What I’m missing? (I tried uploading usim .qcow2 format, but the same problem)
