Recommended disk layout for manual installation on debian

for some reasons I can't boot the 5.3 iso on my Gigabyte BLPD-5005 Brix (Black Screen with a white dash on the upper left). But as I can boot the Debian Strech 9.6 Image (or the Ubuntu 18.04) I decided to do a manual install as described in the Wiki. But what is the recommended disk layout for Proxmox? Is there somewhere a description that I missed?

- What Partitions do I need
- What Folders do I mount where

Of course this is highly depending on my setup, but what would the Proxmox ISO Installer do?

My PC has a 1TB SSD (NVMe) where all the Proxmox related things shall go to. On the 2.5" HDD 2TB backups of Proxmox and TV recordings will be put.
