Perhaps I'll give that a try, but eliminating the virtio drivers by
switching back to IDE disks, uninstalling the balloon driver, etc.,
didn't improve things at all.

I had some problems initially with Windows Update, but that's
resolved now, and everything else seems to work. But, with a
1024x768 screen and no mouse, there's not much you can do with it
besides saying, "See, it runs!"
