Proxmox 8.0.2 install freeze

After some support for my install of v8.0-2. Right now it will freeze on the text screen after selecting the graphical or console install. It stops at the section where it tries to load a bunch of drivers. I get no error messages or other indicators but it didnt move after literal hours of leaving it alone.
it seems the nvidiafb driver bug, try "nomodeset" from Advanced Options or use previous version for the moment.
A refreshed iso will be released.
I might wait for the refreshed ISO then. Im still very much in fumbling beginner territory and have to be away for a week coming up soon too, so leaving the install alone for that amount of time will be little impact on me. Thanks for the info.
