Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Did you read the (extra) instructions for the 1.2A here:

Yes I did, I followed the instructions, with the above result.

I udated the firmware, booted the sbc

The point is that the instructions for the 1.2A version (echo …etc at the bottom of the page can only be performed after a succesfull install. I never reach that point.

Dit anybody with a 1,2A version succeed in installing Ubuntu 23.10? Please tell me how you did that!
