No keyboard input in TTY: Mac live media boot

I'm trying to install arch on a new macbook pro. When I boot into the live installation media, I get a black screen. If I add acpi=off to the kernel parameters, I see the TTY, but cannot input anything via keyboard. Following https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 5#p1506205 I tried nolapic, but that results in corrupted graphics (so far that I can't read anything).

I started posting in https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 6#p1708666 but I felt like my problem was diverging from the original thread.

Re: No keyboard input in TTY: Mac live media boot

I tried

i8042.nopnp=1 i8042.dumbkbd=1

as suggested in https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=176497, but no luck.

An external keyboard connected via USB does work, but since I only have one usb-c adapter, it requires removing the installation media, at which point nothing else works.
