Hi,

imho you should use a Debian Buster install CD and create a layout 
whatever you want. The Debian installer is really flexible. You can't do 
LVM Thin there but a LVM-Thin Pool is only a special LVM LV. So you can 
create two LVs and convert one LV to a Thin-Pool later 
(https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Storage:_LVM_Thin). Or create two VGs.

Then go on with:
