PVE 5.4 iso broken?

I'm trying to set up a new server to replace an older one. The old server is running Proxmox 5.1-46, so I thought I'd try to install 5.4 to the new system, then upgrade once I've moved all the data over. However, when I go to boot 5.4 from the USB that I made (using Rufus), it hangs and doesn't even get to the white Proxmox install landing page. Has anyone recently tried installing 5.4 and been successful? If so, did you have this problem initially, and what did you do to continue? I have tested other versions, 6.4, 7.3, 8.0, and each have booted correctly, it's just 5.4 giving me issues.
