the emulator goes to this white on black screen with the banner. I also can choose the swap unit. then I get the 2 serial port message...
and then... nothing.
I suppose "sunix" (offset 201 of disk A) is a special kernel for 1st step of installation, then unix is the normal kernel but it's only a guess.

in that case, the emulator does not crash but Xenix issue a seg fault. It can be a bug, since my
profile support is not complete but it seems more a native problem.

I won't try on real hardware now... I have to repair my power supply first...
