Fresh install on KVM won't boot

I have a freshly installed FreePBX distro which won’t boot. I installed to KVM on Proxmox VE 5.1. I’m using SNG7-FPBX-64bit-1712-2.iso and chose the recommended Asterisk version (13).

Install went smoothly, but during boot I see lots of failures. It eventually stops at:

This is the second install - the first time it behaved the same way.

I’ve been using FreePBX on KVM / Proxmox for years without any issues like this.

Any tips?

Sorry, gold fish memory!

FreePBX doesn’t like to be installed onto Virtio storage. Switching to SCSI type storage in KVM settings resolves this.
