Sure, i understand what you mean, but my point is that
raw_read(6:/opt/data/windows_xp/winxppro.vmdk, 0, 0x7fffa3d891e0, 2048)
 read failed 500 : 2 = No such file or directory
is actually a standard read operation, and it just thinks that the file
doesn't exist. this leads me to believe that there is a small and easily
fixable bug about either the file location or the reader code in the tap:vmdk
I was just testing it, i could probably just convert it. but i think the code
has a bug that can't find the file.
