Re: [Xen-users] Fail to convert RAW disk to VHD fixed disk.

Hi Fajar et all.Â

I tried your suggested method of using qemu img convert:
qemu-img convert -f qcow2 -O vpc ~/Downloads/Fedora-x86_64-20-20140407-sda-clone.qcow2 Fedora.vhd

however after uploading the image my instance fails to launch with:

Server building... 40% complete
Error building server
ERROR (InstanceInErrorState): No valid host was found.

I contacted rackspace support and they saw no problems in my availability zone. further, the images I converted with the patched vhd util are still booting as expected. However I can't fully rule out spurious build failures on rackspace's side.Â

since the xen kernel is supported in Fedora 16+ are Hyper-v and xen .vhd containers of this type fully interchangeable? The docs are not clear on thisÂhttp://docs.openstack.org/image-guide/content/ch_converting.htmlÂ

How did you arrive at that conclusion?

Correct, it says "VHD (Hyper-V)". It should also be the same VHD
format that is supported by xen, vmware, virtualbox, etc.
