I have just setup two new "Tiny Mini Micro" servers (HP EliteDesk 800 G4 / i5 8500) and installed Proxmox. Idetical systems. One system is stuck at the bootloader screen.

Problem: The "menu timeout set to" is constantly counting up (increasing) without any limit.

When pressing any key the system boots just fine into Proxmox. I've already used PBT to reinit the EFI loader without any success:
