    Ubuntu Server 21.04 Stuck Loading Installer

    I am trying to install Ubuntu Server (downloaded from here) on my server, but after selecting "Ubuntu Server" from the GRUB menu the process seem to get stuck on "Reached target Cloud-init target." before reaching the installer. Does anyone have any idea what might be going on?

    Did you switch to a different tty and login?

    Or .... just hit <enter> for a login prompt.

    BTW, I just installed 21.04 Server in the last 10 minutes.

    Thanks for the reply. I am not familiar with what tty means or how I switch this. The only thing I did after starting the computer was selecting the ISO image location from device boot menu and then selecting 'Ubuntu Server' from the GRUB menu. Hitting 'Enter' or anything else does not do anything at the stage where the installer stops.

    You're still in the installer? I didn't have issues with that besides forgetting to remove the flash drive.

    Are you in a virtual machine? If so, post the hypervisor used. I used all the defaults for the VM install, except I forced using a bridge for the LAN connection and virtio for both the HDD and NIC.

    Perhaps the screen isn't tall enough to see the "Close" or "Reboot" button?

    /var/log/installer/ is where the installation logs are located.

    I am not installing on a virtual machine. This is on bare metal on a Supermicro X11 board. Maybe 'installer' is not correct to use here because I have not really gotten to the installer yet. As mentioned previously the only thing I have done after booting from the Ubuntu Server ISO is selecting Ubuntu Server from the GRUB menu. I have have not even been presented with any install options yet.

    I am stuck somewhere between here:

    <enter> doesn't work?
    Check the keyboard. May need to ensure "legacy usb support" in the bios.

    There is no issue with the keyboard. I can of course hit the enter key, but it does not do anything other than moving the cursor to the next line. Are the snapshots I am adding to the post not showing?

    Thread moved to Server Platforms. which is more appropriate and a better fit.

    Thanks. I do not know whether or not this issue is server related or not though.

    I hope I am not the first ever to experience this issue
