[SOLVED] Graphics driver from virtio-win-0.1.160-1.iso rendered Windows 7 VM useless

Hello Unraid team,

it looks like the latest displayed virtio drivers in the GUI have a serious bug:

https://github.com/virtio-win/kvm-guest-drivers-windows/issues/244

 

I installed the graphics drivers from the iso image, without telling the exact path pointing to windows 7.

So it probably took the drivers for Windows 8 and now the VM cannot boot from vdisk.

 

I get  blue screen:

Right now, I reinstall a fresh windows 7 and try to mount the failed vdisk in hope to extract the important data.

 

Edit: Got managed to boot into safe mode and the reinstall the proper windows 7 driver.
