If this is only practice for a "proper" installation .. why not try something else, such as virtualbox.

Well no, it won't be the desktop environment if it's not getting as far as the login screen .. the desktop is loaded after the login screen (which is why you get to choose an environment at that screen).

I don't get it!

To see if it works with virtualbox, where it doesn't with KVM/virt-manager .. obviously ???

but I can't say what the differences are ..

If abiword didn't work, I'd suggest libreoffice .. doesn't mean I've ever used abiword, or know what the difference is ???

It even failed to perform as expected on a 'live' install - It fubar'd my BIOS!

I'll install Virtualbox somewhere other than where KVM is. does the SPM install put everything needed on a system or have you a better idea of an install?

Ahh, took me a while to work out what SPM was ..

The following assumes you're installing it in Kubuntu 12.04

No don't use the version from the default repo, instead run:
Code: [Select]
wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
then
Code: [Select]
sudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list

add these 2 lines at the bottom
Code: [Select]
# Virtualbox repository
deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian precise contrib

Save the file, and close kate.

Now run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-4.2

I very much doubt that it It fubar'd your BIOS. BIOS operates on hardware level. Though you can upset it by pulling the plug on the power supply (as I have found out not that long ago) but the install would not have done that.
