If you read carefully the first post, and the code extract, it seems 
that it is caused by the Proxmox code in qemi.pm, that says :
"die "you can't online resize a virtio windows bootdisk\n" "

So it is explicitly forbiden by the code, even if it should be possible 
wirh Win7/8, 2008 R2/2012 (I never tried and did not verified).
It requires some change in the code, allowing resizing for thses OSes.
