First of all, you need the qcow2 version of the Windows 2012 R2 Standard from our site. That image has all the drivers required to boot on KVM (Fedora's VirtIo Drivers).

On the nova.conf configuration from the compute nodes, it is mandatory to set virt_type=kvm in order for Windows to boot successfully.

Regarding the issues you have with Linux VMs, you need to tweak the cpu-model/cpu-mode from the libvirt options according to the client OS. I suggest to set cpu-mode=host-passthrough at first,and see if it works.

Thank you,

Adrian Vladu.
