Yes, that was Qemu. Here's a screenshot <http://imgur.com/5bCRrVF.png>.

It comes after the "Loading PilOS" text, and I found the string constant
"READ ERROR 00" in the image binary (at 0xBF), so I thought that was PilOS.

I also recompiled using the provided source / instructions on the Wiki, and
tried booting the resulting "x86_64.bin" in Qemu and bare metal with the
same results.

My PC's BIOS is the same (un-updated) one it shipped with, but the trouble
with BIOSes is that it's unlikely to find two identical confiugurations on
any two systems. :)

I was kinda looking forward to having a Lisp OS on bare metal, but maybe
this is why there aren't that many. :P
I'm all ears if you've any suggestions, and I'll definitely keep an eye on
