Proxmox install issue cannot see the buttons or install wrong / bad resolution cannot see the entire screen problem solution

If you are using a hypervisor to test Proxmox (eg. Vbox) then changing the video card/display adapter can fix it.

For example VboxSVGA causes the issue but switching to VMSVGA fixes it.
