I have this setup:
- Ubuntu Server 14.04.1:
- QEMU version 2.2.0:

qemu-system-x86_64 --version
QEMU emulator version 2.2.0 (Debian 2:2.2+dfsg-5expubuntu8+contrail3),

I had downloaded fedora 21 installation iso:

I am trying the following sequence:

qemu-img create -f qcow2 vdisk.img 10G
I use "-curses", as this machine is a server, and X windows is not
installed there:

qemu-system-x86_64 -curses   -hda vdisk.img -cdrom
Fedora-Live-Workstation-x86_64-21-5.iso -boot d  -m 384

 and I am stuck with a black screen with one line on it, in blue: 1024
x 768 Graphic mode.
This screen does not respond to any keystrokes. except for that
  I can toggle to monitor mode with ALT/2, but this does not help at all.

when I tried with "-nographic" instead of "-curses", the installation hangs.

What should I do in able to boot successfully?
