Hello, thanks for the reply,

I tried with Brave and Firefox and both have the same issue.. now I am downloading a new iso from microsoft, maybe it was corrupted..

little note. The pc I am using doesn't have any graphics card (but the ASPEED integrated on the Supermicro board) could it be an issue?

other question, do you caused this issue only on Windows VM? i.e., the Linux VMs don't have like this problem?

Debian worked, then I re-download the iso (this time using the media tool creator) and it worked, so the cause was the initial iso that was broken in some way..

Thanks for your support
