Unable to automatically boot Proxmox VE 7.4 on ZFS (BIOS)

I'm unable to boot Proxmox VE 7.4 on ZFS in BIOS mode automatically.
It show an error as that disk (hd0,msdos1) is not found as shown in the screenshot.
When I press a key, it will show a menu with Grub 2 and Grub Legacy. Choosing Grub 2 do nothing. Choosing Grub Legacy will show the error disk not found again.

Strangely, if I enter the command mode from the menu, and then just type "exit", it will start a usual Proxmox's blue Grub menu. Then it will boot normally.

I think it's probably something to do with proxmox-boot-tool? But I cannot find any way to fix it. (Already reinit, refersh many time).

Thank you,
