RHEL8 (and all its derivatives) doesn't support Apple M1.
RHEL9 will do.

How soon to see this supported? My organization is standardizing with Alma Linux and the added support for Apple M1 Arm would be great.

Specifically this is to run as a VM, not necessarily on M1 bare metal.
Thanks advance!

What happens when you try to boot from a Centos 8 Stream image? does it work? unfortunately this is difficult to troubleshoot as it requires special hardware - are you using an aarch64 image or x86 image? does the x86-64 work?

Checking in. What would be the expected timing for this?

As @alukoshko noted, you have to wait for EL9, which *might* be out around May (but please don't quote me :)
