Please find below more concise information:

For both the imported vmdk and the freshly installed using OS Type: Linux and version: Red Hat Linux 6.2 the following happens:

From here it starts to check disk hda8 which just does not complete.

The fdsik for hda on this machine, from default installation looks like this:
(Taken from the working copy on Windows)

Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 522 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1         3     24066   83  Linux

Good day,

The above Linux version supports iBCS (Intel biary compatibility system) which is required to execute the SCO binary I have to run to do development on a system that's been around since the early nineties. Later version do not support this.

I have a virtual that was created with VMWare version 7.1 so many years ago and I want to run this VM on QEMU as a KVM. It does not work though. It has issues with the disks.

Creating a brand new VM with from an RHL5.1 ISO results in the same trouble.

Virtualbox runs it happily on a Windows host.

It does not have a gui and I want to run it on a VPS where it can be stopped, started etc with virsh.

Is there some adjustment I can make to improve the situation?

RHL5.1 was in use from 1998 - 2002.
