Hello, this is my first post. Complete noob in proxmox :) I bought a Lenovo M43 Tiny pc to run my home automation but I failed on the first step: installing proxmox

I tried searching for a solution but didnt find it...

I tried removing all bootable options as it was suggested on other threats

Thank you!!

To figure out what causes the grub-install to fail you can press Ctrl + Alt + F2 to switch to a tty showing the logs. This should show a more detailed error message.

Alternatively you could just go to the BIOS settings and switch from EFI boot to legacy BIOS boot and install it that way.
