I've seen something similar with windows XP guests, and I've found 2
workarounds, perhaps you can test those?

The 2 workarounds are:
1) Start the vm, but don't connect spice-client / virt-viewer, wait
    a couple of minutes to boot, then connect (it seems to hang
    when switching from vga to qxl mode, but only when a client is
2) Downgrading the windows virtio-serial driver to version
    vioserial-win-1.1.16.zip, also seems to fix this
