Hi everyone,
I updated ProxMox to 8.0.4
I recently noticed that when I turn it on after the Grub menu the video output stops with the writing "Loading initial ramdisk..." and it no longer displays the normal prompt and the IP address of the server at the end of boot. .
The server still works regularly and I connect as usual via web.
If I hadn't turned on the monitor connected directly to the server's physical video output I wouldn't have even noticed.
The only changes I've made recently are to the various configurations to enable PCIe card passthrough, could that be it?
Is this normal or do I need to fix something because it's not normal?
Thanks for your help!
 
@leesteken
thank you for the quick reply.
The output of cat /proc/cmdline is: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-6.2.16-15-pve root=/dev/mapper/pve-root ro quiet intel_iommu=on iommu=pt initcall_blacklist=sysfb_init

I specify that i passed through an iGPU intel HD4600 of the intel i5 4570 CPU and this is the only GPU in this server.
It works fine.

initcall_blacklist=sysfb_init is the cause.

I don't know if you need initcall_blacklist=sysfb_init but it is often needed when doing passthrough of the boot GPU.

OK, thanks so much!
I'm not an expert and I'm slowly learning to use this fantastic hypervisor.
I wanted to make sure I didn't make any mess!
I'll do some more testing to see if initcall_blacklist=sysfb_init is really necessary but I think so.
Thanks again!
