Failing to create Win 8.1 Trial Image (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL)

I am trying to create an image from the Windows 8.1 Enterprise Trial Image. I have been following a few guides online which go through the whole setup of VirtIO drivers. I make it through the initial part of the installation where I create the disk and then it copies the install files over. Then Windows tries to reboot the VM to complete the installation where I get a BSOD with the error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Finally, the machine reboots again and I get this error:

Here is the command I am using to try and create the image:

 virt-install -n Win81 -r 4096 --disk path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/Win81.qcow2,bus=virtio,size=40,format=qcow2 -c /var/lib/libvirt/images/9600.17050.WINBLUE_REFRESH.140317-1640_X64FRE_ENTERPRISE_EVAL_EN-US-IR3_CENA_X64FREE_EN-US_DV9.ISO --accelerate --network network=default,model=virtio --connect=qemu:///system --vnc --noautoconsole -v --os-type=windows --os-variant=win7

Are there any other parameters I should add?
