At the moment I am exploring how to resolve this issue in R4 

I've tried
qvm-features win7 video-model cirrus
but same problem

The minimum specs from Microsoft for Windows 7 64bits is 2GB of RAM.
qvm-prefs win7 memory 2048

I'll update the doc.

I have also tested that
qvm-features win7 video-model cirrus

I should test fully before saying things. It was required after the first 

This thread provide a comprehensive view 

FYI once the second part of the installation is complete and you have a

Yes (in R3.2):


Extract with:

rpm2cpio qubes-windows-tools-3.2.2-3.x86_64.rpm | cpio -idmv

And start the VM (assuming the iso is in the 'untrusted' VM):

qvm-start --cdrom=untrusted:/home/user/qubes-windows-tools.iso win7
