2.0.0 is pretty old and doesn't have a lot of aarch64 fixes, I
would not recommend using it.

3.2.0 should be much better. If you get errors about cirrus not
being available, you can force the use of virtio-gpu instead by
adding '--video virtio' (you had that in your other command

Well, without more information it's pretty much impossible to
guess what problem you're facing :)

I did try installing the latest CentOS 7 on a RHEL 7.5 host[1]
using the same command line as you, and it worked perfectly.
I recommend updating your host.

[1] QEMU 2.10.0, libvirt 3.9.0, virt-install 1.4.3
