I am unable to get Windows XP to work with the e1000 device, either with
its built-in drivers or with Windows Update. I think it's better to
switch to rtl8139 (qemu-kvm's default for years now).
It used to not work with win2003 as well, but I thought someone recently
fixed the bug that caused that to happen.
I use e1000 with win xp, although win xp has no driver at all for the
e1000 and requires you to download the intel driver and install that.
The intel driver also made win 2003 work before even though the microsoft
supplied driver did not work.
