With fdisk, press A to allocate entire disk for bsd
Select: install a standard MBR
Create partition (with C)

while it's rebooting, exit from Qemu by pressing Ctrl-Alt-2,
then type: q
Step 7
Make JunOS ready to transfer in guest OS
Create a CD Image (ISO) of junOS (using deepburner or any of it kind) and save in Qemu Folder with name like j8.iso
Step 8
Make JunOS Ready for Installation
qemu -L . -m 512 -boot c -hda j.img -cdrom j8.iso
We need to untar the signed jinstall file first:
#mount /cdrom
#cd /var/tmp
#mkdir junos
#cd junos
#tar zxvf /cdrom/jinstall-10.1R1.8-domestic-olive.tgz
Then untar the unsigned image:
#mkdir jinst
#cd jinst
#tar zxvf ../jinstall10.1R1.8-domestic.tgz
Extract the pkgtools.tgz file and replace the checkpic binary inside with /usr/bin/true :
#mkdir pkgtools
#cd pkgtools
#tar zxvf ../pkgtools.tgz
#cd bin
#cp /usr/bin/true ./checkpic
#cd ..
Create tar for pkgtools then remove the directory:
#tar zcvf ../pkgtools.tgz *
#cd ..
#rm -rf pkgtools
Create tar for the new jinstall package with modified checkpic
#tar zcfv /var/tmp/j.tgz *
Then install the new jinstall with bsd pkg_add tool:
#pkg_add -f /var/tmp/j.tgz
It will ask to reboot to continue the installation.
One installation is finished and prompt is returned press Crtl+Alt+2 then type “q” press enter
