Looking through old bug tickets... can you still reproduce this issue
with the latest *upstream* version of QEMU? Or could we close this
ticket nowadays? (or in case you want to get support for qemu-img from
Ubuntu instead, please use the "qemu" Ubuntu package as target, not the
"qemu" project target)

** Changed in: qemu

  no bootable device after qemu-img convert parallels windows 2012 r2 to

Status in QEMU:

Bug description:
  We have converted a parallels windows 2012 R2 image with the command
  qemu-img convert -p -f parallels -O raw 

  Afterthat we have created a new entry with virtual machine manager and
  used this raw-hdd file as "import existing disk image"

  Then we booted this virtual server and we got the error 
  "Booting from Hard Disk"
  "no Bootable device"

  Test 1: we also tried to "overwrite" the windows server drive
  1. Create a vm with windows 2012 r2 (W2K12R2) with virtual machine manager. 
Which runs good
  2. Then we mounted in the command line the "no bootable device" server  as 
source (raw image)
      mount /ev/mapper/loop0p4 /mnt/source
  3. Then we mounted the new created (W2K12R2) as target (raw image)
      mount /ev/mapper/loop1p2 /mnt/target
  4. with the copy command we have overwritten all files on the windows drive
      rsync -av --delete /mnt/source/* /mnt/target/ 
  5. reboot the server and we have a blue screen and it tells me something 
       "your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart ...... If you'd like to 
know more, you can search online later for this error: 

  Test 2: We also did a qemu-img convert from an ubuntu 14.04 disk and
  this works perfect.

  Thanks a lot

  PS: Installation of Host-Server uses: ubuntu vivid 15.04 with
