[ovirt-users] Installing Windows - no virtio-win.vfd as floppy option

Sure, feel free to reach out, I just did a big windows deployment and there
were lots of hurdles to overcome, but it does work well in the end.  I used
the console during windows install, but I was doing it remotely, in an RDP
session with a server on-site.  So the mouse control was all out of whack,
I had to keyboard through the setup.   Once windows is installed and joined
to the domain, you can RDP into it and it's much more bearable to operate
than the console method.
