Sorry I wasn't concentrating very hard on this list for the past
couple of weeks.

virt-p2v doesn't understand RAID devices at all.  There's no real
limitation here, it's just that you're the first person who has asked
about it.

Can you open a bug report, and also send the virt-p2v.log file from
your attempted installation.

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
