What did you use as a qemu-img command line to convert, because I had no problem with it in the past?

I’m trying to convert a vmdk windows image to a raw image compatible with xen. I have tried qemu-img and vmkfstools so far, but have had no luck I.e, DomU says it can’t find the boot disk and fails. I am going to  try out Redhat’s virt-v2v. Is there a tool you guys use?
