Unraid VM Disk Conversion

Unraid (or more accurately qemu) is able to convert disk images from VDI or VMDK to RAW. This is often required when migrating a VM from Virtualbox or VMWare over to Unraid.

The command below will convert the VDI file to the a RAW image:

qemu-img convert -p -f vdi -O raw VirtualBox.vdi Unraid.img

Much the same, the following command does this for VMDK file:

qemu-img convert -p -f vmdk -O raw VMWare.vdi Unraid.img

That's about it really.
