we tried to install the ceph windows driver. After installing the driver, windows will allways reboot directly into windows recovery mode.

We could reproduce it with




It only produces the error when i install the "Windows ceph RBD driver" . I can install the CLI . And the CLI is working fine.

We installed it on a fully patched Win10 and a fully patched Win11 . Both installations are unusable after installation. The computer is running as a virtual machine on a proxmox server. (Linux qemu server) The Windows Version is Gernan . (Maybe its a problem with the language? I know that the virtio driver has a problem with german windows versions)

We only need the CLI, so it is OK for us. But i thought you should know about this problem.

The Windows driver hasn't been signed by Microsoft yet, which is why you need to disable Secure Boot as mentioned here: Windows will fail to boot otherwise.

Thx, that did the trick. I didn't thought microsoft would allow me to install a unsigned driver, if secure boot was on. But yes i can install the driver. Good to know for future similar problems.
