Stuck on boot screen (Mac mini 2011)

I installed Proxmox 8 on my Mac mini 2011 through usb with the nomodeset option in the installation menu. It all seemed to progress just fine but after installation and reboot (booting up the new installation of Proxmox) the progress stopped.
I rebooted and started in the recovery mode which is more verbose and that's attached as a file to this message.

I would be very grateful if someone could help me figure out how to make this work, I've spent far too many hours to get this up and running...

(The device is not yet connected to the internet - if it matters)

Okay, so I found out that if I add nomodeset when booting up it works fine. Is it problematic to always use proxmox with nomodeset when running it?
