The installation gets a little bit further in IDLE. The copy appears to succeed, although the boot loader prints "sninit: no drive connected (0x0)". The kernel boots (in LisaEm, the emulator just segfaults), but it appears to hang before reaching userland, at the same place where it hung on the real Lisa. Maybe the init binary is corrupted? It isn't necessarily crashing for the same reason, though; maybe the kernel isn't able to mount the root FS, because it is also printing the "no drive connected" messages.

BTW, have you gotten Xenix to boot in LisaEm yet?
