Hi all, 

As suggested in this Ubuntu tutorial:

Creating a windows guest is
  sudo virt-install --connect qemu:///system 
  -n xpsp2 -r 512 -f windows.qcow2 
  -s 12 -c windowsxpsp2.iso 
  --vnc --noautoconsole 
  --os-type windows --os-variant winxp

This is Ok, it creates a qcow file and all is fine.

Know, I setup a partition (/dev/sda10) just for the windows guest.
What would be the modified virt-install invocation in order to use 

Thank you.
