Anything in the PVE-nodes journal that might indicate where the error is
happening? (`journalctl -b` gives you the journal since boot)

which version of OpenBSD are you running?

check out the known-issues part of the 7.2 release notes - a few changes
to kernel-configuration can result in your machine needing to set some
kernel commandline parameter (try all of the mentioned ones):

Also make sure to install the latest available BIOS for the machine (don't
know what the version for the g10 is - but 2019 seems a bit old)

I hope this helps!
