Yes it's ok.
Or you can use another computer with virt-manager installed which supports running windows virtual machines on it. In other words another computer with cpu with virtualization feature + kvm + virt-manager.
If you use the option with another computer you will have to copy the resulted qcow2 file resulted from the installation of win7 with virtio drivers for net and disk from the computer with virt-manager to the glance server.

I saw that but I don't have virt-manager on my compute node. 

Is it ok to install it?
