I'm running Windows 10 as guest via KVM / qemu. Unfortunately, Windows doesn't recognize the fedora virtio drivers I want to install for better HDD perfomance. The driver itself does show up, but installing it fails:

I tried several driver versions, namely
0.1.112, all for amd64.
sudo qemu-system-x86_64 \ -device virtio-scsi-pci \ -drive if=none,id=hd,file=win.img,format=raw -device scsi-hd,drive=hd \ --enable-kvm \ -cdrom Win10_1511_German_x64.iso \ -m 4048 \ -drive file=$HOME/VirtualMachines/virtio-win-0.1.112.iso,id=driveriso,if=none,format=raw \ -device ide-cd,bus=ide.1,drive=driveriso \ -cpu host,kvm=off
What could cause Win 10 to reject those drivers? Are there better alternatives for fast HDD access from the Guest OS?
