advertise e1000 supported for windows
Last modified: 2016-09-19 21:46:02 EDT
I did an installation of a WINDOWS 7 guest. If I don't specify anything it picks rtl8139 as default.
Since I need a gigabit card I need to specify model=e1000.
So I guess virt-install should pick e1000 instead of rtl3189 by default.
on this system I have:
horizon ~ # qemu-system-x86_64 -net nic,model=?
qemu: Supported NIC models: ne2k_pci,i82551,i82557b,i82559er,rtl8139,e1000,pcnet,virtio
horizon ~ # virt-install --version
Looking at the libosinfo database, it appears that the windows XML data files are configured on the assumption that the application will be installing the windows virtio driver add-ons.
This may be desirable, but we shouldn't assume that, so I think libosinfo database probably ought to *also* list e1000 as a valid NIC for windows, so that e1000 gets used in cases where virtio drivers are not installed by the virt-manager
