Hi David,

this is the right key combination. I have tried this and I get the same
result as you do. I'm a bit puzzled by this, as similar keystrokes work
well in e.g. the Centos console installer. Sorry for chasing you down
this rabbit hole.

Would the text based installer in a virt-viewer X window be any option
for you? You'd remove the "--graphics none" and "--console …" options
from your virt-install command. The virt-viewer window has the menu
option to send Ctrl-Alt-Fx keys.
