Re: [Libguestfs] P2Vs seem to require a very robust Ethernet

I did one with ntbackup and restore a few months ago and ran into problems
with the virtual cpu not matching the virtual bios. That one was in a
libvirt environment and that VM will retire soon.  But with the current
project, these VMs will be around a while.

Windows mostly fixes itself. If it boots and you don't see any missing
drivers in Device Manager, you're probably good to go.
