debian etch kvm no longer works

I think this started after a recent upgrade.
we have a debian etch kvm - that has worked forever.

now it boots slow and login is impossible.

the kvm wil lnot work on ceph or ext4 directory .

is there a way to start a kvm in debug mode to try to get to the cause of the issue?

qemu-nbd -c /dev/nbd0   /nvme-ext4/images/117/vm-117-disk-1.qcow2
mount /dev/nbd0p1 /mnt/t01

thank you.
