I am new to qemu. I just want to boot an iso file using qemu. I have
tried the following:

$ qemu-system-x86_64 -boot d -cdrom lubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso

It shows the initial menu. I selected "Try Lubuntu without installing".
Then a blank screen comes and nothing else. Did I miss something ?

Perhaps it doesn't have enough memory (default is just 128 MiB). Try adding the -m option. For example -m 1G.

No it doesn't work. I tried the following and still shows the black screen.
$ qemu-system-x86_64 -boot d -m 1G -cdrom lubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso

Do I have to create a linux.img as shown in the following url ? I just want to boot the live .iso. I don't want to install Lubuntu on my computer.

Please suggest.
