Description of problem:
fail to install windows guest with virtio-win driver (virtio-win-1.6.7-2.el7.noarch) from floppy. Also tried with the virtio-win-1.6.7-2.el6.noarch in rhe7 host that still hit it.
btw, rhel6.5 host did not hit such issue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
host info:
guest info:
win7 64bit

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install virtio-win in host and download win7 iso.
2.install guest vir iso with virtio-win driver from floppy.
e.g:...-drive file=/home/sluo-test1.qcow2,if=none,id=drive-virtio-disk,format=qcow2,cache=none,aio=native,werror=stop,rerror=stop -device virtio-blk-pci,vectors=0,bus=pci.0,addr=0x4,scsi=off,drive=drive-virtio-disk,id=virtio-disk,bootindex=1 -drive file=/home/en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x86_dvd_619077.iso,if=none,id=drive-data-disk,media=cdrom,format=raw,cache=none,werror=stop,rerror=stop -device ide-drive,bus=ide.0,unit=0,drive=drive-data-disk,id=data-disk,bootindex=0 -fda /usr/share/virtio-win/virtio-win-1.6.7_amd64.vfd

Actual results:
fail to detect the virtio-win driver after select load it from floppy.

Expected results:

I think not relate to it, I did not use the Q35, just use the pc machine type.

I don't think this bug 1032222 was related to this one, as the virtio-win whql driver has problem that not support Win2012R2 in bug 1032222, but this bug is  about just the QEMU not the whql, you can check the comment#0 which the same whql driver in rhel6.5 host has no any problem.
