Hello, during the configuration of Freenas, I wanted to set up a virtual machine in order to make Freenas a multiple server. So I start by going through the different steps of creating one of my virtual machines.

Once created, I look to execute it, and I get an error message explaining that the devices are not configure as you can see on the images below.

How to solve this problem of the execution of the virtual machine. because I don’t really understand this type of problem. Indeed you can see if below that Freenas create devices automatically at the time of configuration if I’m not mistaken. And on top of all that, when I see messages about python I have to admit that it makes me a little scared.

Thank you in advance if you can help me with this kind of problem.
