I have windows guest and after power cut, My Windows guest doesn't boot and gives BSOD. Then it entered to recovery mode. When write "list disk" in diskpart, it says "there are no fixed disks to show"

I have ZFS Mirrored Striped with ZIL without UPS.

Is there way to fix this?

The problem is that you have to manually load the virtio drivers in recovery mode, if not loaded you won't see any virtio disks.
To load them:
drvload D:vioscsi\2k16\amd64\vioscsi.inf

Afterwards diskpart should show them as usual.
