    14 The installer can only expected to work with a very specific system configuration. Realistically this will only work in Qemu. The system architecture must be ia32 or amd64, the Grub platform must be 'pc' (i.e. not EFI). Also the paths to CD-ROM and disk devices are hard-coded into the installer.

    20 The target disk must be empty. This can be achieved for example, if you supply a freshly created zero-filled image file to Qemu.

    38 It might be possible to run the installation within Qemu and then boot the disk bare metal, as long as Grub device name is the same as in Qemu, i.e. {{{hd0}}}.
