virt-v2v windows host conversion

I'm converting from a Xen to a KVM environment. The host is Centos 6.2 (x86_64). I'm using virt-v2v to convert my current vm's. The Linux hosts have worked fine, however my 2 Windows machines both fail the conversion:

# virt-v2v -i libvirtxml -os kvm_test --bridge br0 <host config>

Attempts to convert both a Windows 7 and a Windows 2003 server have resulted in this error:

virt-v2v: No root device found in this operating system image.

I can't find much useful information that's specific to my situation. Both of these Windows vm's are simple implementations hardware-wise. No RAID, etc.

I don't know about CentOS, but on RHEL 6 that error message means that the libguestfs-winsupport rpm isn't installed. It means that inspection failed because libguestfs couldn't read the NTFS filesystem.
