7.4 unable to get past "Attempting to get DHCP leases... ../../../lib/isc/timer.c:797: fatal error: RUNTIME_CHECK(isc_tiem_now((&now)) ==0) failed"

Installing on a Zimaboard 832 with an intel Celeron N3450. I installed in debug mode and the same issue appeared. I also received a similar message when attempting to install PVE8.0. Decided to try 7.4 and received this.

Please let me know if anything else is needed. I am fairly new to the homelab space and thought this would be a good place to start getting help.
