Live-CD in Qemu

Checked virtual graphics with "lspci -nn" :
VirtualBox mounts a "00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : InnoTek
Systemberatung GmbH VirtualBox Graphics Adapter [80ee:beef]"
Qemu mounts by default "00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Cirrus
Logic GD 5446 [1013:00b8]" but Gnome works better with "00:02.0 VGA
compatible controller : Device [1234:111]" (parameter -vga std)
Both Qemu cases work in all OS (and U-Gnome upto 14.04) but not in
Is there any new VGA drivers problem with those graphics adapters?
PD: Don't know how to use InnoTek VGA in Qemu or others than VB.
