Ok, I've tested both installers in VB(VB was configured with non-PAE
extension), and have functioned as it should. Very simple and very-very
fast. I didn't see any option for a dual boot though, but I guess these
images are for full disk installation only.
Here are some screenshots

problems and with a RAM footprint of 56MB !!)

problems and of course here we have a clean Ubuntu Core, where we can
build anything we want).
As I have already said.. Nice Work !!
