Hello. Could you please try CentOS 8.5 on the same system?
We have to find out if this is upstream regression or AlmaLinux specific bug.

We tried RockyLinux 8.5 and RHEL8.5 - same symptoms, problem is most likely in kernel configuration difference between 4.18-240 (which was used in 8.3 release and 4.18-348 (8.5 correspondingly). The paradox is, that to report problem upstream we have to have paid subscription.

Then the best option is to check it on CentOS Stream 8 iso:

If it works then most likely it will work with 8.6.
If not then you should report to CentOS Stream bugzilla

BTW do you need graphics after install?
You can either install in text mode or start with AlmaLinux 8.3 and then upgrade it to 8.5.

You can report RHEL-related problems upstream (Red Hat) without paid subscription. Just create an account at and file a report.

aklymov could you confirm that video works on 8.6?
