Re: [et-mgmt-tools] Virtio support in Windows

You can create custom windows installers with pre-packed service packs and drivers. So in theory you could add the virtio drivers to a windows install ISO.

What about Virtio support in Windows in virtinst OS dictionary ?


Would that be possible? The OS dictionary is (currently) only ever
used for initial installation. The Windows VirtIO drivers can only
be installed post-install. So, AFAICT, it wouldn't be possible todo a
install with virtio enabled in the os dictionary for Windows. Unless
perhaps there's a way to provide them as a driver disk to the initial
installer ? If we booted with a 2nd CDROM or floppy device containing
the VirtIO drivers would the Windows installer be able to use that ?
