Hi Marco,

I believe this is due to the current image not supporting BIOS boot. Could you attempt with a UEFI boot and see how that goes?

I am working on preparing a new generic cloud image which supports BIOS booting.

No bother at all. I apologize for the latency. I am working on generating images now and will have them out this evening (including new Azure images for the folks on the forums).
