Subject Re: Converting QCOW2 to VHD
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2014 16:48:04 GMT
To add, I've this patched vhd-util that has convert. For some reason my
apache login and the web dir including the vhd-util file is not accessible:
people.apache.org/~bhaisaab/vhd-util-patched

This is the google cache:

Here is a link from my blog which can help you while working with vhds for
xen:

Cheers.
