Adding a new ISO to Proxmox

1. Navigate to your storage

Navigate to the storage dedicated to your ISO images and click the “ISO Images” tab on the left hand side.

2. Download the ISO

Above the ISO images, you have two options, either to upload your own or to download from URL. For the sake of this example, we’ll be downloading Ubuntu 20.04LTS directly from Canonical.

5. (Optional) Checksum

If you’re downloading an obscure ISO and you’re unsure of the source, you can always open the advanced tab and Proxmox will compare the checksum of the downloaded ISO for you.
