Hmm, judging by your later mail I take it you figured this out. Just in case
anyone else is wondering, the command Arnaud used was:

$virt-install --connect qemu:///system --name=merdox --ram 4000 --cpu
host --disk path=/dev/vg0/lv_merdox,bus=virtio,sparse=false,format=raw
--cdrom /dev/cdrom --description="merdox -vm guest on host magnolia"
--graphics vnc --os-type=windows --os-variant=win7  --video=vga --hvm
--accelerate --network bridge=br0 --disk
path=/home/gabx/isofiles/virtio-win-0.1-30.iso,device=cdrom
