Re: [Libguestfs] Virtio-win RPM?

I was looking this thread over and for anyone who stumbles across this
via google or other search engine:

Note that for V2V and P2V migrations, the virtio-win ISO is not enough.
The RHEL virtio-win RPM includes the ISO plus unpacked copies of the
drivers for various Windows versions in /usr/share/virtio-win/drivers...
You need these unpacked drivers at the end of a P2V or V2V so the
process can insert them into the new VM.  P2V and V2V migrations will
fail without it.  The RHEL virtio-win RPM installs just fine in Fedora;
I hope Fedora will find a way to officially include it soon.
