I've had a Windows XP KVM running through several fedora

Ah, so it's not just me then...
I had been running the redhat virtio disk and network drivers
inside the KVM, have they gone incompatible on me? (I guess
I could try switching the KVM back to IDE emulation and
see if it starts working).
It's virtio I suspect. That was certainly what I found, that switching
back to IDE fixed it.
I thought I had ruled out all likely changes (ie updates to kernel
and/or qemu) though so had pretty much decided that Windows had just
decided to start objecting to the driver for some reason.
It's only booting that seems to be a problem - if you hot add a virtio
disk while Windows is running then it can access it just fine.
