Initial Boot freezes on "Loading initial ramdisk"

I have downloaded an archlinux cloudimg qcow2 image from here https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/ … wse/output

I am using the following user-data file:

#cloud-config
password : qwerty

and then making it into an iso like this,

xorriso -as genisoimage -output cloud-init.iso -volid CIDATA -joliet -rock user-data meta-data

And I run the qcow2 image like this:
qemu-system-x86_64 -hda Arch-Linux-x86_64-cloudimg-20211113.39004.qcow2 -cdrom cloud-init

but the installer loads and the menu for ArchLinux comes...
and then
Loading Linux linux

and then it gets stuck on
Loading initial ramdisk


The host cpu usage goes high 100% on 8 cores

and then nothing happens...

Any help would be appreciated!

It does work when I load using libvirt...
I have a guess it has to do something with the display starting before the drivers initialize...
