I am also pretty sure if you installed the VirtIO drivers first (if this is possible), you can then migrate the machine. If you can't boot windows to do that, the other alternative is booting VM with Windows ISO attached and VirtIO drivers boot floppy, and in Windows setup there is a way to open the registry of the Windows on the hard disk and tell it to install and load the drivers there.

No, the generic SATA controller didn't work.
When booting it gives you the BSOD with the 7B error code, which is boot
To migrate the machine I needed to boot the machine with VirtualBox with
an IDE controller for the boot disk and an extra sata disk. That seems
to get the right SATA drivers installed. Then I can use KVM to boot it
as a SATA disk.
