It is normal for the Proxmox installation to appear to hang at 3% "Create LVs" for 5-10 minutes or even longer. Give it more time, it's not a bug.

This is not normal, on modern hardware the installation is done in full in a few minutes.

I installed Proxmox 7.0 on nine Dell PowerEdge T420 and 7.1 on three more, and on each it was stuck at 3% create LVs on each install, which is why I went searching for this issue. I also found these:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Proxmox/comments/quo0nl/proxmox_refuses_to_install_to_hdd/

I thought about opening a bug but I don't have diverse hardware to test with, but it does appear to be a very common condition.
