The 2nd try was successfull. It took 9 hours to get the dump restored.
The system now boots fine, even of course slower than native.

I still strougle with some smaller issues:

Xorg uses only 1280x720, while the full host display is NVidia support

I can't get sound to work; the sound device is attached to the VM, the
kernel loads snd_emu10k1.ko  and sound.ko, but no device shows up.

Any ideas?
