Thank you very much for your help! I finally managed to setup the system by
using your instructions.

However, I'd like to note that formatting the disks after setting the time and
prior to the base system install didn't work for me: The installer returned
to the main installation menu after detecting the disks. Afterwards, this
happened when selecting the disk partitioning tool as well as the base system
Instead, I simply re-installed the base system without formatting the root
partition again.
