Hi Nerijus,

Thanks for the tip. If I may ask you more about virtio with Windows. Do you think it is beneficial, in terms of performance, to use virto for disk and network on Windows guest? If so, how can I install Windows on a virtio disk? I don't think Windows would recognize it during installation.

No, if network and disk are not virtio, you don't need virtio drivers for them.
