I know, it’s hard they both look identical. Well they kind of are, Picture A is the installed OS/2 2.0 image that I’ve been playing around with. It’s a 500MB IDE disk formatted with the HPFS filesystem. For the heck of it, I used the qemu-img tool to convert it from a qcow2 into a vhd (qemu-img convert 500M.disk -O vpc 500M.vhd) and then tried to boot it up on Virtual PC. I know in the past it’d fail with some weird error as something on HPFS wouldn’t transfer and it’d be the end.
But it worked!
This is really a great victory for Qemu!
