I'm attempting to load the ISO 'virtio-win-0.1-65.iso' for creating my windows installation however I cannot seem to do this in KVM. I've tried also editing the 'dumpxml' however OpenStack overwrites it whenever it reboots. From the documentation I've tried to use attach-disk however it seems to not want to interface with qemu.

 root@hv1:~# virsh list
 Id    Name                           State
 26    instance-00000211              running

root@hv1:~# virsh attach-disk 26 --source /root/virtio-win-0.1-65.iso --driver=qemu --target vdc
error: Failed to attach disk
error: operation failed: open disk image file failed

The following is listed in my libvirtd.log

2013-10-02 00:54:20.495+0000: 6788: error : qemuMonitorTextAddDrive:2724 : operation failed: open disk image file failed

Whats the best way to load these drivers?

I was following the docs in OpenStack to create a Windows VM image from ISO: I can see the virtio ISO in Windows installation

The version of OpenStack that this is opened against has been declared EOL as per Please open a new issue if you are still seeing this problem with a more recent, supported version of OpenStack. Thanks.
