With virtinst yes. But it could be useful to have the possibility to install a 
Windows with virtio network support guest with Virt-manager... The only 
solution at this moment is:
- abort the installation
- remove the standard NIC
- add a virtio NIC
- reselect CD-ROM boot priority
- start the VM again

It has a lack of ergonomics.
