Ubuntu has opted to drop openbios from their packages (Not open enough? So why supplying a bricked qemu at all?) and various files I have found so far does not seem to work. I thought they wouldn't depend on qemu version but they fail in various ways. Maybe I should build all of qemu from scratch instead. Fixed. After finding the latest openbios files it was just PIO: I thought I could use the disk image in .xz format as-is but it has to be uncompressed. The sympthoms lead me to believe I still had openbios problems. magnum
