[ovirt-users] Install Windows VM issues

Hi Markus,

you don't need a second CD Rom or floppy drive. Choose "Run once" - 
"Boot Options" - "Attach CD" to attach the Windows ISO. When the install 
process gets to detecting storage devices you have to choose "Change 
CD", where you insert the VirtIO ISO. When the hard disk is detected you 
revert back to the Windows Installer ISO for the rest of the install 

Good luck
