Matt said this is not a blocker because there are so many ways a user can currently break Windows conversion, so he doesn't think it's worth singling out this one. So remove the "TestBlock" keyword and "blocker" flag for this bug.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 615981 ***
Bug 615981 is a RHEL 6 bug. This isn't a duplicate.
Verified with virt-v2v-0.7.1-4.el5.
The new v2v mechanism will try to install virtio driver via copying drivers into corresponding dir instead of CDUpgrader's help. So this issue has been resolved automatically after mechanism update.
