Description Rita Wu 2010-07-08 05:06:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently there is no package and file about Win7 specified in /etc/virt-v2v.conf and /var/lib/virt-v2v/software, so we cannot convert Win7 successfully.

I think you may be confused about this.  "Windows 7"
has the internal release number 6.1 and is therefore
covered by the W2K8 drivers.

Did you try updating an actual Windows 7 machine?

Try running virt-inspector on the image to find out the
real Windows internal version.

Comment 3 Rita Wu 2010-07-08 08:55:51 UTC
Hi Richard,

Thanks for your info. the internal version of Win7 is 6.1(the same as Window2008r2).And I retest it, v2v can convert win7 successfully.

#virt-inspector --perl win7-32.raw
$VAR1 = '/dev/sda2';
$VAR2 = {
          'arch' => 'i386',
          'apps' => [],

          'major_version' => '6',
          'root_device' => '/dev/sda2',
          'filesystems' => {
                             '/dev/sda2' => {
                                              'arch' => 'i386',
                                              'windows_registered_owner' => 'root-32',
