I have installed all the drivers shipped with that ISO, plus the qemu agent, and spice guest tool. That "HID Button over Interrupt Driver" still has a exclamation mark on it. So far the guest system works well. I just wonder what could it be.

There is an overall benefit with virtio as it is more efficient on both the host and the guest. 
Then,  during the installation, before the media selection and the actual partitioning you are given a chance to install extra drivers. That's the moment the drivers are needed.

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.

Most probably VirtIO Balloon

Probably VirtIO Serial.
