These are the normal steps:
1) create a VM with a blank virtual hard disk
2) virtually insert the DF image disk
3) At that prompt, you type "installer"
4) You then install DF on that virtual disk
5) you shutdown the VM and virtually remove the DF image disk
6) you boot the VM, which is now booting from the virtual hard disk
7) you don't get the "installer" prompt anymore, you get the normal menu
and then then "login: " prompt
