=== Windows KVM Guest and Paravirt NIC Drivers ===
 
As seen in [[FWN/Issue152#Using_VirtIO_Network_Driver_for_Windows_KVM_Guest|
 
FWN#152]]. The {{package|virt-manager}} GUI doesn't have the knobs in the UI yet to
 
enable [http://wiki.libvirt.org/page/Virtio virtio] drivers. THe {{package|libvirt}} framework underneath does support it, so it can be done by hand. Here's how.
 
 
* [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=180599 Download] the drivers to guest and extract on desktop.
 
* Shutdown the guest <code>virsh shutdown winxp</code>
 
* Dump the libvirt XML <code>virsh dumpxml winxp > winxp-before.xml</code>, and change the network settings. To the <code><interface></code> block add <code><model type='virtio'/></code> like this:
 
<pre>
 
[root@seitan virt]# diff -u winxp-before.xml winxp-after.xml
 
--- winxp-before.xml 2008-12-01 17:37:39.000000000 -0800

* Redefine the domain with the altered config: <code>virsh define winxp-after.xml</code>
 
* Start the guest <code>virsh start winxp</code>, and install the drivers within Windows when the new hardware detection wizard pops up.
