Is it possible to install it in QEMU at all without using another emulator? (hardware machine is ok)

Would you be able to contact in QEMU developer's list with SeaBIOS maintainer to find what makes it stop working on 0.12.x branch?

Would you mind putting the information about how to make it running, how well it runs, so on, on QEMU's officlal OS support list (at http://www.claunia.com/qemu/ )?

Under what license is that operating system?
