The interesting part will be to see what arch-detect prints out in the

Here's what I see with -M mac99:

~ # /bin/archdetect

I guess that should work? If so, I can kick off another installation in the background later.

So, which image did you use and was QEMU already configured like that when
you were trying it in the first place.

Because I am starting to question my sanity. If you're showing me that arch-detect
is detecting the machine correctly and you used the latest image which I tested
myself on real hardware, then it's not possible that the partioner will use
the wrong layout.

Well bear in mind that last night's install would have been running under an Old World (-M g3beige) machine as that was before I realised from your comments this morning that the new functionality was restricted to New World machines.

I've started a new install on a blank disk with -M mac99 and will report back.
