Yes. Pretty amazing. Windows 7 install and setup worked fine.
Also installed Win2K8 server from ISO on another VM.
Here is the config file for the Win7 VM.

proxmox:/var/lib/vz/images# cat  /etc/qemu-server/106.conf
name: Windows7Ultimate
ide2: local:iso/en_windows_7_ultimate_x86_dvd.iso,media=cdrom
vlan0: rtl8139=F6:1F:5F:47:2C:B6
bootdisk: ide0
ostype: other
ide0: local:106/vm-106-disk-1.raw
memory: 2048
sockets: 1

Only significant difference seems to be raw vs qcow2.
The network card is also different.
