When trying to install debian Buster in qemu using a virtio graphic
card, the installer fails to boot.

gnome-boxes is setting up the VM with virtio GC by default without a way
of changing that means that it's just not working for people using it.

I am still able to reproduce this issue with the qemu version in Bullseye
and a buster installer / netinst iso (the text-based installer fails to boot; 
the graphical installer works though).

However, with the Bullseye installer, this is no longer the case, both
installers work fine.

So closing this bug
Thanks for reporting!
