Clonezilla Image Restored in Qemu/KVM

I managed to finally get a clonezilla image of an existing Windows 7 box to restore onto a KVM instance with Qemu. The kicker was getting the storage drivers installed onto the windows image. I found the key here: http://christian.hofstaedtler.name/blog/2013/01/using-dism-to-add-drivers.html!

dism /image:c:\ /add-driver /driver:d:\win7\amd64\viostor.inf

C: will be whatever drive your system (winows installation) is recognized as — in my case it was actually e: due to my launch parameters. ¬†Similarly “d:” will be the wherever the iso image for the virtio drivers is located — in my case it was “f:”.
