I reload the ISO of pve 8.0.2 and remake It With Balena etcher....
It seams on old-hardware (10 year old i7-3632QM Packard Bell EasyNote TE11HC laptop ) automatic install freeze at kernel loading or some-things.....
So i tried the second option (console ...) and failed...
then third option (More option) and it works.... (And still running for More than 2 days With lid closed)

What exactly do you mean here? Choosing the Console Mode - nomodeset option? Did the installation work via this option?

That disables automatic loading of any graphics drivers, which often is needed on very new or very old hardware due to incompatibilities. So not all that unsurprising, as you also mention old hardware.
