It seems that the reason is qcow2 file created by QEMU tool is not
supported by Xen??



From what I know this is true. It is probably the biggest blunder of the virtualization world! I'd like to
know who at the xen team decided to adopt qcow but not make it compatible with QEMU. You can
use qcow but you need to use xen's tool to create it. From what I understand there's a difference in
endianness of the file.

Now they have two problems.
