The error was:

I was trying to install the VM using a netinst ISO, which I think was 
too ambitious. Since I couldn't get the VM network up for some reason, I 
didn't get very far with the installation. I want to try over with a 
normal install ISO. Can I destroy the VM as Jiri suggested, and then 
re-run --deploy? Or do I need to do the cleanup actions Didi suggested?
