first you have to convert the image file to qcow2 format

This example will convert a raw image file named centos63.dsk to a qcow2 image file.

qemu-img convert -f raw -O qcow2 centos64.dsk centos64.qcow2

To convert from vmdk to raw, you would do:

qemu-img convert -f vmdk -O raw centos64.vmdk centos64.img
