I got it. The -hda option cannot be used. This breaks both installation and will prevent HDD image from booting. A simple -drive option must be used. Which only needs file and format if raw.

Could be an interesting way about it. Almost like have a full disk cache that flushes to disk when needed. You may only notice it when ejecting when it flushes the final buffers to disk.
