Fresh build, Black screen during ProxMox install

Just built a new machine with following:

ASRock Fatal1ty X370 Gaming-ITX/ac
Ryzen 2200G
Intel 660p 1TB

Installing ProxMox 6.0 from USB, UEFI and Legacy both boot into the install options screen fine, but screen goes blank shortly after initial load screen.
Indeed it did, I ended up having to install PVE on top of Debian. I was able to get into the web ui, but after I made a few quick setup changes (added a network bridge, so probably unrelated), I rebooted to apply the changes, and it goes to a black screen again on the server. Last thing I see in bootup is something about Bluetooth not being able to load a default something.
* hmm - maybe try to boot without the 'quiet' option in the kernel commandline (that way you'll see how far the kernel does get before it goes to blank)
* also try booting with 'nomodeset'

editing the kernel commandline can be done by hitting 'e' while the grub screen shows - if in doubt - there's tons of howtos on the internet

Hope this helps!
