Is it possible to covert a .img to a xva? 
I have a virtual machine on a xen machine that i would like to run in a xen cloud.

I used the xva.py and it gave me a xva + kernel i followed the copy instructions but i get this:

[root@box ~]# xe vm-start vm=converted
Error code: WARNING: /dev/xvda is not a disk image
Error parameters: Traceback (most recent call last):,   File "/usr/bin/pygrub", line 746, in ?,     raise RuntimeError, "Unable to find partition containing kernel", RuntimeError: Unable to find partition containing kernel, 

Any pointers on this?
