Building and starting a QEMU image

pmbootstrap init  # Choose a qemu-* device (x86_64: amd64, arm: vexpress-soc)
pmbootstrap install --no-fde
pmbootstrap qemu --image-size=2G

Note: The amd64 version is recommended if you don't know which one to choose. See the device specific pages (links below) for the differences.

The --image-size=2G parameter will increase the image size to 2GB, so you don't instantly run out of space (by default the image size is as small as possible). Check out pmbootstrap qemu --help for more options, such as performance tweaks.
