Instance Console log OK but nothing on actual console

Hi, I'm having a problem with a custom image instance (Cisco's IOS XRv). The instance console log is fine, I can see there that my image booted properly up to the login prompt, but wen I open the actual console it is stuck immediately after grub and it just says:

Booting 'IOS XRv'

There is no reaction to keyboard input. It seems like the console somehow looses track of the tty, although in the log everything is still printed. How can I make the console log and the console itself synchronous ? Do I maybe need some -nographic option similar to qemu that works for openstack?

try opening the console in new window and if not try ssh into instance to see.

I already opened the console in a seperate window, I see exactly the same there, and I can't ssh into the instance because it doesn't support automatic configuration of the network interfaces.

Is it possible that there is a problem with your image. Had you tried booting up another iso ?

Tried 3 different vIOS images - the same issue. CSR1k image works fine after I klick on Control-Alt-del Button - it reloads and gives me console. Bu vIOS images do not do this.
