## XML Volume file
Create a new xml volume file based in another one from /var/lib/ravada/xml.
## Windows specifics
For Windows you will need the virtio ISO that can be downloaded from https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/stable-virtio/virtio-win.iso
Save it to /var/lib/libvirt/images and change the owner as you did for the Windows ISO.
# chown 07500 /var/lib/libvirt/images/virtio-win-0.1.126.iso
Then edit your Windows xml file and point the second CD drive to that ISO. For the current stable virtio version, it looks like this:
<disk type='file' device='cdrom'>
<driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
<source file='/var/lib/libvirt/images/virtio-win-0.1.126.iso'/>
<target dev='hdc' bus='ide'/>
<readonly/>
<address type='drive' controller='0' bus='1' target='0' unit='0'/>
</disk>
You should also ensure that the system disk cache is set to 'directsync':
<driver name='qemu' type='qcow2' cache='directsync' io='native' />
