:), well I still don't rule out the case that I am doing something wrong still.

So, I am trying to give information that can help us decide if I am doing
something silly or if in fact there is a bug that was not found.

Yes, the root partition, which contains the boot and grub directories, is
on the virtual disk as /dev/hda2, I confirmed this and also early on sent
the fdisk -l of the disk image. I still haven't ruled out the fact that it could
be an issue with the detection of the disk image, but still need a working
disk image to test on somehow.

How do you create your disk images for test purposes? Do you use dd,
some install tool, etc?
