# Arch Headless Virt Install
# Arch Headless Virt Install
## virt-install ubuntu16.04
Create the disk image
`qemu-img create -f qcow2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/xenial.qcow2 20G`
Command to run the install
```bash
virt-install \
--name xenial \
--ram 4096 \
--disk path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/xenial.qcow2,size=20 \
--vcpus 4 \
--os-type linux \
--os-variant ubuntu16.04 \
--network bridge=br0 \
--graphics none \
--console pty,target_type=serial \
--location ./ubuntu-16.04.3-server-amd64.iso \
--extra-args 'console=ttyS0,115200n8 serial'
```
## virt-install Arch Linux
The `--extra-args` option lets you use a serial console. But the
`--extra-args` option only works if you also use an `--location`
option. But the `--location` option can only be used with certain isos.
So use `--cdrom` instead of `--location`, drop the `--extra-args`,
and instruct the kernel to boot with a serial console with a parameter
at the boot splash screen.
```bash
qemu-img create -f qcow2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/arch.qcow2 20G
virt-install --name arch --ram 4096 \
--disk path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/arch.qcow2,size=20 \
--vcpus 2 \
--os-type linux \
--os-variant ubuntu16.04 \
--network bridge=virbr0 \
--graphics none \
--console pty,target_type=serial \
--cdrom /var/lib/libvirt/images/archlinux-2018.02.01-x86_64.iso
```
the arch boot splash screen will appear in your terminal and you can
tap the "tab" key to edit boot parameters
add "console=ttyS0" to kernel command line parameters
before
```bash
> .linux boot/x86_64/vmlinuz archisobasedir=arch archisolabel=ARCH_201802 initrd=boot/intel_ucode.img,boot/x86_64/archiso.img
```
after
```bash
> .linux boot/x86_64/vmlinuz archisobasedir=arch archisolabel=ARCH_201802 initrd=boot/intel_ucode.img,boot/x86_64/archiso.img console=ttyS0
```
