it is reproducible (tested on another configuration - dell optiplex 580)
download viostor windows 2003 32-bit drivers image from:
to /var/lib/libvirt/images/
put windows 2003 server installation iso to
create lvm volume for vm sotrage (in this example 20GB volume at /dev/vg/w2k3). launch qemu-kvm windows 2003 server installer with additional mounted floppy with image from above and with lvm volume as virtio block device. when installation begin hit F6 and add additional drivers for block device and choose windows 2003 32-bit. follow installation instructions. when installation finish and system should start (second reboot) screen goes black, cpu load is 100% and nothing happens.
attached example libvirt configuration.
below example qemu parameters:
/usr/bin/kvm -M pc-0.12 -enable-kvm -m 512 -smp 1 -name w2k3 -localtime -boot c -drive file=/var/lib/libvirt/images/w2k3sp2.iso,if=ide,media=cdrom,index=2,format=raw -drive file=/var/lib/libvirt/images/viostor-31-03-2010-floppy.img,if=floppy,index=0,format=raw -drive file=/dev/vg/w2k3,if=virtio,index=0,boot=on,format=raw -net nic,macaddr=52:54:00:67:2e:84,vlan=0,name=nic.0 -net tap,fd=38,vlan=0,name=tap.0 -vga cirrus -monitor stdio

I have the same problem with win2003 guests on lucid. Thread goes to
100% cpu usage and is unreponsive. I am not using viostor at all though.--
