I don't know what went wrong. But if your CD works with qemu and not
with a real PC, you may use a serial console in qemu, which is not
connected to your real PC?
Best thing you may do, to track the problem is,
boot in qemu with priority=medium or low, load the ssh-client udeb and
execute the shell udeb from the menu. You must boot in text mode, to
make this work.
Then post the content of /proc/cmdline
and the content of your profiles/*postinst
then one may see if there are any mistakes
for some reason simple-cdd sets it derfault input output to serial console.
To fix it should add the parmeter use_serial_console="false" into profiles/yourprofile.conf.
Or pass Console=tty0 at boot (install console=tty0)
