Sorry, I had missed a switch for the RAM. I do have the same issue 
regarding encryption in Qemu as I had with the real installation:

Installation Failed
Boost.Python error in job "machineid".
<class 'subprocess.CalledProcessError'>
Command 'systemd-machine-id-setup' returned non-zero exit status 127.
   File "/usr/lib/calamares/modules/machineid/main.py", line 47, in run 

File "<string>", line 2, in <module>

Hope that helps
