I haven't test version QEMU 2.9.0 but I did test version 2.8.0 and it has the 
same problem. Starting up Windows 2000 in VGA mode allowed me to access the 
operating system. Found out QEMU's default video controller is not recognized. 
In the Device Manager I can see a yellow question mark for Video Controller 
(VGA Compatible). I remember Windows 2000 being able to use the default video 
card in QEMU in the past. I may be able to bisect this issue after all.
