Short howto:
- power off the VM
- add a small new virtio disk
- power on
- install virtio drivers from http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/virtio-win/latest/images/bin/virtio-win-0.1-15.iso
- poweroff
- go again to the hardware tab and remove the IDE disk
- add the unused disk but using virtio
- start
