Hello. Micro$oft's 64bits OSes are known to be problematic w/ kvm.
I guess that the main problem w/ Qemu is that Microsoft Virtual Server can emulate a SCSI controller and Qemu cannot... I havent checked but I bet they installed their VM's with just SCSI drivers... Try to install IDE drivers from VM Ware and then to boot from QEMU. Also, try to disable ACPI (update the "computer" driver to "Standard PC" if available) Regards, François.
