Good day!

I'm trying to get Proxmox running on a KGPE-D16 Server running Heads.

( For some background: this system boots

into a Linux environment, has scripts that parse the GRUB config, and boots

into the final system using kexec (stock BIOS replacement)

Its stuck with Starting new kernel...

And cant boot into grub.

Any ideas how to fix it ?

Here is a some screenshots attached

Its stuck with Starting new kernel...
linux26 seems not to be the Proxmox VE kernel. The PVE Kernel is named vmlinuz-<version>-pve.

Besides the above, the dev states.
NOTE: It is a work in progress and not yet ready for non-technical users. If you're interested in contributing, please get in touch. Installation requires disassembly of your laptop or server, external SPI flash programmers, possible risk of destruction and significant frustration.
