Hi again

First, I thing that I cannot resize the VM disk on-line, because I used an
out of date Virtio Drive..
So, I install a new VM with Windows 2012 using last Virtio Drive and still
can't resize a disk with an online VM!...

Is there some bug with Virtio Driver or Qemu?? I'm using
Virtio-Win-0.1-81.iso...

Thanks
