What version of QEMU are you using?  I can't get anything to run with
the isapc machine type - I just get:

SeaBIOS (version rel-1.11.0-11-g4a6dbce-dirty-20180207_213141-morn.lan)
BUILD: gcc: (GCC) 7.2.1 20170915 (Red Hat 7.2.1-2) binutils: version 2.29-6.fc27
No Xen hypervisor found.
Unable to unlock ram - bridge not found

I didn't think isapc was functional at all.
