Manjaro(Xfce & Mate) 20.1 installation on Hyper-V stuck on Light Display Manager and TLP system

Loading of Manjaro 20.1 from ISO doesn’t go beyond Light Display Manager ERROR and getting stuck on TLP system startup/shutdown.
Same for the Manjaro Xfce as Manjaro Mate.

I am trying to install Manjaro 20.1 on:
Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter
GPU nvidia Quadro P400
Hyper-V (6.3.9600.16384)
Also added RemoteFX 3D video adapter to Hyper-V server

I get this output:

(x4 times)
Starting Light Display Manager …
[ OK ] Started Light Display Manager
[ OK ] Stopped Light Display Manager.
[FAILED] Failed to start Light Display Manager
See ‘systemctl status lightdm.service’ for details.
[ OK ] Finished Intialize Pacman keyring.
[ OK ] Reached target multi-User System.
[ OK ] Reached target Graphical Interface.
Starting TLP system startup/shutdown…
[ OK ] Finished TLP system startup/shutdown.

Then nothing happens anymore.

I can’t check ‘systemctl status lightdm.service’ because desktop doesn’t load and also not before because Manjaro didn’t load anything jet.

On my laptop with virtualbox I do not have the problem and continue to installation desktop.
I hope that I can use Manjaro for my virtual machines.
With Manjaro 18 I didn’t have this problem, can’t update with older the older Manajaro 18 version.

Hope someone can help.

HyperV is a Windows virtualization technology and not supported by Manjaro.
