I installed 4 hosts with my USB yet.
Now, at host 5, I get this error.

The other ones Arena working fine.

Maybe you could help?

when does the error exactly occur? What is the exact error message? Are there any other messages that might what went wrong?
Maybe you can you provide a screencap or similar of the error.

What does the host system look like (CPUs, RAM, storage (-controller), etc)?
Some more information are definitely needed to help you troubleshoot.

the error occurred during the installation.
There are no more error-messages.

CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G2020 @ 2.90GHz
Disc: 250GB

I thought I added the picture at the first post, but I think, it didn't work.

Best regards,

Which version of Proxmox VE are you trying to install (or for that matter, which ISO revision)?

Also, are there any more messages on the second terminal (Ctrl + Alt + F2 as in the screencap)?
And what kind of disk do have? I guess some sort of NVMe SSD? Sounds like a problem with the disk, on a hunch.

it's still PVE 7.
I'll go and see if there are any other error messages on the second terminal.
An HDD is installed.
