It's a windows VM, so no. The qemu command libvirt is using is:

/usr/bin/qemu-kvm -S -M pc-0.11 -enable-kvm -m 1024 -smp 2 -name 
windows_xp_64 -uuid bb4c089d-1a5e-b349-07fe-4098efdf5fe0 -monitor 
-localtime -boot c -drive 
-drive if=ide,media=cdrom,index=2 -net 
nic,macaddr=00:16:3e:12:4a:56,vlan=0,model=virtio,name=virtio.0 -net 
tap,fd=27,vlan=0,name=tap.0 -serial pty -parallel none -usb -usbdevice 
tablet -vnc -k en-gb -vga std -soundhw es1370

That said, I've tried stripping most of that out and still get nothing 
so I think something more fundamental is wrong.
