Then clone the image/use differencing hard disks etc.

Alternatively, add another virtual disk, copy over FPC/Lazarus install
from e.g. usb stick. Using fpcup also works. Installing from source also
Running the installer and not selecting any file associations may also
work; I don't think the installer modifies the path but I'm not sure.
