There is an overall benefit with virtio as it is more efficient on both the host and the guest.Then, during the installation, before the media selection and the actual partitioning you are given a chance to install extra drivers. That's the moment the drivers are needed.Il 04 gen 2017 02:12, "Xi Shen" <address@hidden> ha scritto:Hi Nerijus,Thanks for the tip. If I may ask you more about virtio with Windows. Do you think it is beneficial, in terms of performance, to use virto for disk and network on Windows guest? If so, how can I install Windows on a virtio disk? I don't think Windows would recognize it during installation.Regards,DavidOn Tue, Jan 3, 2017 at 10:48 PM Nerijus Baliunas <address@hidden> wrote:On Tue, 03 Jan 2017 13:53:20 +0000 Xi Shen <address@hidden> wrote:

No, if network and disk are not virtio, you don't need virtio drivers for them.
