Problems with this approach:
- compare it to driving a car. at one intersection the car just drives
on. At another one it stops.
This way you run into another car in the first intersection and most
probably (murphy's law) halt without a reason on the second.
- you can never do better than factory bios
- the emulator would have to pass calls to the hardware. qemu, bochs and
co emulate their own hardware.
