wow, what a crazy thing to try! I can't help, but I would be very interested to know if you succeed. Can I ask why you want to do this? Is it for blueiris or gaming? If it's gaming, I would probably just do windows 10 on bare metal or dual boot if you want to play with proxmox a little.

What's a prebuilt mid range sff home pc that can do some light gaming and web browsing?
I have the optiplex 7050 at work and wish I could have one at home. But it's an i7 and probably $1500 or more. Anything close to that in quality for half the price? Doesn't have to be an i7 as gaming doesn't...
