It seems that the batch file is trying to boot the hard drive image
instead of the ISO image. Obviously, since the HD image hasn't been
initialized with a proper OS, it will fail.

Appearently the batch file worked because it passes the "-L ." flag to
QEMU, but sticked to bootin the HD by default.

I hope that's it, and now everything should work OK. Let me know :)
