I just tried to boot up the latest iso and it stops after the message:
isolinux: Found something at drive = …
isolinux: Looks reasonable, continuing…
Then… nothing. I tried varying combinations of ram 4GiB-8GiB, cores: 1-6 and allocated drive space 24GiB to 70GiB in three different environments: VMWare Player 16, Virtual Box (Latest) and HyperV (tried both option 1 legacy and 2).
Thanks judd, appreciate the links, there is a lot of useful info there for setting up vmware on linux. I am however running vmware, vbox and hyperv on windows and attempting to boot the iso in a VM, the iso gets recognized ok and shows grub boot options as per above, so unfortunately the links you have posted are not relevant and do not provide an answer to my question:
-why is there no boot option into live environment?
None of the links provided are helpful.
I was of the opinion to be somehow too stupid, because after all my last installation of archlinux was nearly 8 years ago and it is still running today. Since then I haven’t bothered with the installation process of this OS.
So, how do I get into a terminal to type ‘installer’ and start the live process with dk?
there are three partitions in qemu
sda1 - swap
sda2 - hatchery
sda3 - siduction NOX
I tried the latest iso in virtualbox 7.0.6-1. At beginning, it stuck in udev hooks. After several changes in machine settings (enable/disable 3d acceleration, enable/disable efi, etc), it suddenly boot. I guess it’s related to the VirtualBox drivers. Try to check the vb logs to see what is going wrong and play with the settings.
