Summary0007958: Installation according to docs on UTM gets stuck

Following the steps from the documentation ("From here we can proceed to install Kali as normal.") will get you stuck with a black screen and a blinking cursor and no way ahead.



1) After the basic configuration of the VM, you need to edit the VM, go to "Display" and select "Console only" for the installation. Hit "save" and boot the VM.
2) Select "Installation". Selecting "Graphical Install" will fail.
3) From here, proceed with the console installation as usual.
4) After the installation, edit the VM, go to "Display" and select "Full Graphics". Hit "save" and boot the VM.

Steps To Reproduce

1) Start UTM
2) Follow documentation
3) Select Install or Graphical Install
4) Get you stuck with a black screen and a blinking cursor
