please start in debug mode, press ctrl+d once, and post the full output and the file /tmp/install.log obtained from the shell you get dumped into.

the dhcp seems to be working now as i am getting an ip but i still can't install it,
i seem to be getting a "Timeout too large reducing to: 2147483646 (TIME_MAX - 1)"

and there is still nothing in the tmp folder

can you retry with the 6.1 iso? maybe running "dmesg" will provide further clues as to what goes wrong.. you can also try restarting the installer from the second debug shell by running xinit

could you post the full X log (as text, you can mount and copy to USB or NFS in the debug shell), and describe the hardware?

seems like the on-board video card is too old to support our default graphics setup. if you have a spare extra lying around, plugging that in should help. you can also try with "nomodeset i915.modeset=0" added to the kernel command line, or with a manually crafted xorg.conf. finally, you can also install plain Debian, and then install PVE on top

i didn't have a spare video card lying around, i might be getting on next month

what i did was, i put the hard drive in my other computer, installed proxmox and then put the hard drive back the old desktop

and it works,

i installed a virtual machine and it runs fine

i found some video cards online for 20 bucks, would it benefit me if i had a video card?

is it really necessary other than installation? will a video card make my virtual machines faster?

yes, it's just needed for the installation (and what you did with pre-installing on another system is a good workaround, the only things which are system dependent are default swap size and EFI boot, as well as the DHCP-assigned default IP config if that is MAC-derived).

Did you try burning the iso image from Linux, Linux Mint or Ubuntu?

I had this same issue for Proxmox 6.0 and 6.1 and rebooting UEFI or Legacy boot did not help. I even tried nomodeset and other cmd line and re-downloading and creating USB bootable again. Later on I realized debugging that this was 100% videocard fault due to proxmox does not include full xorg service drivers.

The problem is I connected my DVI to an adapter that converts DVI to HDMI then that HDMI connects to my 4K monitor.
Ubuntu understands this complexity and can work with it but lots of other Linux don't understand DVI being converted to protected HDMI signal without the protection signal (I am looking at you Debian).

Solution is my videocard happen to have a Display port and so did my Monitor. I directed connected Display port to both the computer and the monitor and bam everything works. It booted to the installer GUI and I was able to install fine.
