OK.
I attempt to install Debian Buster, today, after resolving the previous problem.
(best to know virtio modules are included into Buster)
Sha512 is OK!

My new config about /etc/vm.conf:
Code:
ROOT="/home/myid/vm"

switch "sw" {
    interface bridge0
}

# VM to attempt an install img OS
vm "install" {
    disable
    cdrom $ROOT/debian/debian.iso
    disk $ROOT/debian/boot.img
    disk $ROOT/debian/buster.qcow2
    interface { switch "sw" }
    memory 4G
    owner myid
}
I launch the vm s:
Code:
$ vm start install -c
choose "Install" menu, without problem.

But, when scan hard drive to detect an installer ISO image, it's not found, and ask me to specify. I enter device manually, as: /dev/cdrom
And it found the ISO file to use:

After, it asks me if I want to copy the ISO image into RAM before mounting.
Either choice "Yes', or "No", it' fails at this step.

Any suggestion?

Is 1 GB of RAM sufficient for this Debian guest?

Obviously, that "Installation step failed" message doesn't tell you what the failure was. Does the Debian installer create logs? If so, exit this installer script and inspect log files.

Try using a netinstall image instead of your custom boot.img, I've just got a Debian buster system up & running under OpenBSD -current using this method.

I use the netinst

Code:
$ ls -al
total 54986192
drwxr-xr-x  4 myid  myid          512 Oct 14 17:07 .
drwxr-xr-x  3 myid  myid          512 Sep 30 18:08 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 myid  myid          658 Sep 30 17:41 SHA512SUMS
-rw-r--r--  1 myid  myid    999997440 Oct  3 14:12 boot.img
(...)
drwxr-xr-x  3 myid  myid          512 Oct  2 12:13 buster
-rw-------  1 myid  myid       262144 Oct  2 23:28 buster.qcow2
(...)
-rw-r--r--  1 myid  myid    351272960 Sep 30 17:41 debian-10.1.0-amd64-netinst.iso

(...)
And for this attempt, i've not modify the boot.img; just downloaded and used.

Do I comment only into ''vm.conf'' the line 'disk... boot.img'?

I think so, yes. I used vmctl(8) directly rather than /etc/vm.conf

Code:
cat /etc/vm.conf                                                                                                                 
D="/home/myid/vm/debian"

switch "sw" {
    interface bridge0
}

# VM to attempt an install img OS
vm "install" {
    disable
#    boot cdrom
    cdrom $D/debian.iso
    disk $D/buster.qcow2
    interface { switch "sw" }
    memory 4G
    owner myid
}

I just waited 30 seconds, the installer continued afterwards.

Did you add the parameters to force a serial connection?
Code:
console=ttyS0,115200n8

Press <tab> with the Install boot menu entry highlighted then add the parameter after quiet and press <enter> to start the modified entry.
