I found the solution. I looked at the details of the running machine and noticed that the storage format was "raw".

image description

So, it was only seeing the actual size of the file. I changed that to qcow2 and rebooted and it was able to see the disk properly. I then edited my cmd line to add format=qcow2 to the --diskpath for the qcow image. Now it loads properly.

--disk path=win7sp1.qcow2,format=qcow2,device=disk,bus=virtio

Now, I've copied and pasted at least a dozen of examples and not a single one included that statement. So how, in God's name, has this EVER worked for ANYone???
