PVE/Proxmox: Stuck in a boot-reset loop after adding kernel parameter

Post by peter_b »

[PROBLEM]
After adding new kernel parameters for full IOMMU separation of hardware devices (See Proxmox PVE: passthrough of non-GPU + split IOMMUs).

Seems like loading the kernel module (?) for `pcie_acs_override` support, triggers to load the mokmanager.efi boot image:

By default, the "reset system" option seems to be selected, causing the system to get stuck in a boot-loop.

[SOLUTION]
It seems to be sufficient to "confirm" the change of boot-parameters, by selecting "always continue boot".

However, I'm personally a bit unsatisfied with this, as I don't yet fully understand what caused mokmanager to load in the first place, and if there's anything else that I *should* have done, rather than just saying "ignore and continue"? :|
