Vertical Only Mouse Movement on Proxmox 8 install on MBP 15" 2011

Hello, I've been trying to install the v8 ISO onto my 2011 MBP 15" but when it comes to accepting the license agreement, I cannot get to scroll onto the accept button as the mouse only moves in the vertical direction. And to make it more confusing, I have to swipe on the trackpad horizontally to make it move. Seems like theres' something going on with the drivers for v8 as v7 does not have this issue when installing. Don't know who else to tell so am posting this issue here.
PVE 8 allows you to chose the text-only installer; does that work for you? Or use the keyboard to select the button? There is always the work-around of installing Debian or the latest PVE 7.4 first?
Using the text/command-line installer works. Keyboard in PVE8 wasn’t working to select buttons. Have just installed PVE7 from GUI.

Was just trying to provide feedback on bug. Thanks for suggestions…
