I'm trying to get a disposable virtual machine on my private server.
I've tried downloading a couple of Debian ISO files for 9.6.0, but I am unsuccessful in booting any of them.
kvm -m 2048 -smp 2 -hda debian.12GB.img -cdrom debian-9.6.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso -boot d -curses, and same with
debian-live-9.6.0-amd64-xfce.iso, all I get is the following, and it doesn't progress anywhere further:
640 x 480 Graphic mode.
I've tried the
-nographic option as well, but it didn't seem to result in anything being printed at all.
