I can't remember such an option...
Can you be more specific, or sure about the name you selected?

I chose boot with open source drivers

I am not sure what's happening.
Some advice:
The starting time is long. It takes several minutes some times.
If you don't have ethernet network (no internet), try with network (smartphone USB tethering). If you do have internet, try without. :man_shrugging:
You may try the Barebones ISO, which boots to linux-lts kernel and is he most reliable in such cases.
