Hi, So I tried something else, that ended up not working either. :(
I booted the installer in BIOS mode, and followed the instruction to make the vm disk UEFI-bootable here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd-boot I omitted the intel microcode (I don’t think it applies to a virtual machine) and I added the “console=ttyS0” option. When booting with UEFI, I still got stuck and there was no output whatsoever. I used the “vm” script with the uefi=“yes” option. Nothing works with UEFI console for me so I think I’m going to stick with BIOS-MBR-GRUB for now, unless you have an idea I can try… Thanks for everything.
