There are several ways to install VirtIO drivers: ProfitBricks offers a default ISO image option that you can attach as a virtual CD/DVD drive. In order to install them, you'll boot from the CD ROM first, and go through the installation menu. Once you're done installing them, remove the ISO image "windows-VirtIO-driver.iso" from the CD-ROM/DVD Drive and click Provision again. The ISO provides VirtIO drivers for Windows Server 2012 (R2) and Windows Server 2008 (R2).

If you are running a different version of windows use the following link to download the latest drivers.
