Hi everyone
I'm a real newbie in terms of proxmox/

I'm at my first install of proxmox on an x99 motherboard with Xeon E5 2670 CPU, 32GB RAM, 2 NVME, 1 hdd
Every component was tested under windows and it is working fine.

Now when I boot from USB stick with proxmox v. 8.0.2 installation program, it freezes after few seconds with multiple messages saying

[7.020937] clocksource: Switched to clocksource tsc loading drivers: nuidiafb ahci nume mac hid umi i2c_1801 chci_pci xhci_pci efi pstore pcspkr intel_cstate rapl aesni_intel sha512_ssse3 ghash_clnuIni_intel pol yual cinulni crc32 pc Inul crct10dif pclmul kun intel intel powerclamp x86_pkg_temp_thermal intel_rapl_common
[8.728430] nuidiafb: Device ID: 10de1287

Is it a known problem? Shall I boot with some specific parameter? (BTW how can I pass boot parameters to the kernel?)

Any hint will be very much appreciated

Thanks

Hi,

[8.728430] nvidiafb: Device ID: 10de1287
Is there an Nvidia GPU installed in the system? These are always problematic due to the driver situation.

Anyway, in the bootloader, try instead selecting "Advanced Options" and the "Install Proxmox VE (Console Mode - nomodeset)" - this avoids loading any graphics drivers and thus you should be able to proceed with the installation.
 
I'm also trying to install ProxMox on an X99 board with a i7 CPU and attached RTX-3090.

My install stops at exact same place. However on my ProxMox install USB drive, I don't see an option for "Install Proxmox VE (Console Mode - nomodeset)"

All I see listed when I navigate to "Advanced Options" are:
  1. Install Proxmox VE (Graphical, debug mode)
  2. Install Proxmox VE (Terminal, UI, debug mode)
  3. Install Proxmox VE (Serial Console debug mode)
  4. Rescue Boot
  5. Test Memory
I do not see a "Install Proxmox VE (Console Mode - nomodeset)" option ???

Both option 1 & 2 end up stopping at about 8.5 seconds on the nvidiafb: Device ID: xxxxx.

I'm using the Proxmox VE 8.1 iso release.

My motherboard does not have a discrete graphic port, so I need to use a GPU to run the monitor. (I also tried an old GTX 730 I had lying around, but same issue.) My motherboard has USB interfaces but does not have a DB9 RS-232 serial port.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time.

This option - Install Proxmox VE (Console Mode - nomodeset) in 8.0 version
My case is also similar
