PVE on Laptop - Kernel Won't boot


Aug 24, 2019
Hi there, I have to stay offline a while and want to work offline on my LXC Containers. I have a relativlely low end (4 thread) Laptop. I installed Debian on it, as IP Address I chose (I will add a bridge later). I tried to setup it as a part of a dev station and added the sources, after installing the kernel and reboot, I get:
"loading initial ramdisk", like forever.
Here on this step https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Install_Proxmox_VE_on_Debian_12_Bookworm#Install_the_Proxmox_VE_Kernel
the old kernel works like charm, but I read that it could lead to issues. If it helps, I use cryptsetup.
