No drives during Win2k19 server install (using Fedora virtio ISO)

First time installing a Windows guest in PVE. Found a couple different guides that point o using the Fedora VirtIO drivers during custom installation.

- PVE 6.0-5
- Virtio-win-0.1.141.iso
- Windows Server 2k19 (using the Win10/2016 mode in PVE)
- SCSI controller = virtIO SCSI
- Storage is a few ZFS datasets (for C drive and logs) created through PVE gui.

If it matters, my CPU type for the VM is "host" since this is a standalone PVE server. Does it need to be KVM64 for Windows guests?
