Well, it didn't seem to boot though...
However, when I installed it, the disk was ide, I then installed the drivers (by adding a second drive in virtio mode), switched the main drive to virtio and restarted. I already did that a few time ago and it worked...
I'm currently trying to install it from scratch in virtio mode, by using the latest drivers from kvm website : this latest version works with windows installer (with F6 at startup to give specific drivers) so it may be better.
About the qxl driver in F13, it definitely won't build...
Tanks anyway for all your work, it becomes easier and easier to test spice! (and I can't imagine what it will be when spice gets into upstream qemu!).
