> upon finishing installation even though I'm using IDE as the disk driver.
> I have uploaded a win 7 x64 ISO and tried installing that, and it loads the
> VirtIO viostor driver (using the method at:
> https://www.ovirt.org/documentation/how-to/virtual-machines/create-a-windows-7-virtual-machine/

> (screenshot attached).
> I've tried temporarily removing the vioscsi files from the install server as

> Thanks for any help.
