I have no idea what the problem of the f... nuc is.

seems to be either a firmware or kernel bug, seems to hang when trying to access the disk.
Have you tried updating the UEFI to it's latest version? That often helps, as firmware on consumer devices is often buggy.

You can also try out the Debian 12 installer and see if that works?
If yes, you can simply Install Proxmox VE on top of Debian afterwards.
I gave the Nuc to a friend who also has one and couldn't install anything either. Then he lay around with me for many weeks. Last week I had some time and picked it up again and suddenly Proxmox was installed, which would never have happened. It's been running diligently for 2 weeks now. Quite strange
