Hi! Im facing the same issue, getting stuck at “Booting from Hard Disk”.
Im on Ubuntu 18.04, i tried from virt-manager and the qemu cli, both stuck at that message.
This was the command:
sudo qemu-system-x86_64 -boot menu=on -drive file=librem5.img -vga virtio -m 3G -enable-kvm
I tried with several builds from this site:
which i learned from the documentation:
Some builds were devkit.img, some were librem5.img, neither worked.
I even tried converting the image to a qcow2 (documentation uses that format) with the following command:
qemu-img convert -f raw -O qcow2 librem5.img qemu-x86_64.qcow2
It also didnt work, this was the command:
sudo qemu-system-x86_64 -boot menu=on -drive file=qemu-x86_64.qcow2,format=qcow2 -vga virtio -m 3G -enable-kvm
