Strange that the kernel freezes, instead of loading further to process 
Is KVM's virtual machine emulation complete enough to put any DOS on it? 
As in most FreeDOS related issues I'd recommend testing on MSDOS first.

harddisk (thus containing KERNEL.SYS) or booting an installation 
diskette or cdrom?
