  • Using -drive + format instead of "-hda" avoids a warning about unspecified format
  • To avoid issues with mouse input  - the argument "-usbdevice tablet" had to be added.  The new version of this is -device usb-tabletThe old was -usbdevice tablet.
    When using  -device usb-tablet you must also preceed it with the USB controller: -device nec-usb-xhci for USB3.

    From version 2.10, there is a warning saying to prefer "-device usbtablet" instead but that did not work.  The old deprecated flag still works, only with a warningusb-tablet".
  • When running later image features like Chromium browser you should increase memory, for example:  -m 2048

Once the system loads, you can verify that the hardware acceleration is working by ssh'ing to the machine and checking the kernel messages :
