The simplest way is to regularly backup your machine definitions
via "virsh dumpxml name > name.xml", then you can recover the
machine definition via "virsh define name.xml". If you can still
boot f11, that would be the way to go.

The error-prone, will probably force you to re-activate windows, way
is to define a new virtual machine with virt-manager, and when
it gets to the disk image part, say "use existing", then "browse local",
then point it at your existing image file. When it boots from
the iso image, use "force off", then you should be able to boot
from the disk image and maybe it will be back.
