[Qemu-discuss] running a system installer under QEMU

I've installed a system to /dev/sda6 with the machine booted from 
the installer diskette.  That system boots as expected.

Also attempted to install the system to /dev/sda5 with the diskette 
content running under QEMU as described here. 
No problem is evident in the installation process but that system 
will not boot.

Approximately the first 300 bytes of each device are visible in 
this screenshot. The lower /dev/ is bootable.  The upper is not.

I don't understand how the installer produces such different boot 
sectors in the two cases.  How can an installer run under QEMU to 
obtain a result just as if it was running from the boot device?

Thanks,                   ... Peter E.
