Has anyone generated the Windows 2012R2 and 2012 Standard sysprepped RAW images on KVM Juno environment?

Looks like this is not working. I am able to generate the RAW images, but on applying sysprep ,the image is unable to boot. This is not an issue however with qcow2 images which boot fine.

Thanks, Sanjeev

I generated the RAW image using the windows tools.

The raw image generates just fine using the imaging tool above, but on sysprepping of the RAW image does not boot at all and says hardware error etc.

A quick fix in your scenario would be to use:

qemu-img convert -O raw -f qcow2 <qcow2-image-file> <raw-image-file>

On the actual issue, can you give more information on how you generated the RAW image, like the tool used, parameters and the boot error you are getting?
