Using archinstall to install arch on Hyper-V

Hello everybody,
I am trying to install arch linux on a Hyper-V gen-2 virtual machine using the new archinstall guided installer. When requested which video driver to install, on the basis of what I have read at https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Hyper-V I have selected fbdev (I am not using gpu passtrough).
During the installation process, immediately after the installation of plasma-meta konsole kate dolphin sddm plasma-wayland-session I get some messages of the type
hv_vmbus: No request id available+
but I don't know if they are relevant.
However when I try to login in kde session the screen becomes blank ad I can't do anything else
Can anyone help me to understand what's wrong?

Re: Using archinstall to install arch on Hyper-V

Ok, then  I have done other steps and Installed again arch using archinstall with xfce, and again it works (for some reasons instead I get a blank screen when triying to select Gnome as DE).
Then I have gone trough the wiki and I have enabled  Hyper-V integration services and configured screen resolution at boot time.
I haven't been successful instead with Enhanced Session: I have been able to install the linux-vm-tools with git and to enable hv_sock from Windows. Where I'm failing is at editing  ~/.xinitrc to start Xfce.
I have copied /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc to my home directory and just added the line
exec startxfce4
at the end of file, but I still can't connect to xfce session. Could anybody help me to fix this issue?
