We could probably support OEL with a bit of effort, but it's not
supported now.  The virt-v2v manual (which you should read, as well as
the virt-p2v manual) provides a list of all OSes which are supported.

Windows XP should work.  If it doesn't work you have to enable
debugging (this is now enabled by default in all new virt-p2v
versions), and then provide the full debug logs.  See the instructions
for where these are located on the conversion server.

When using '-o rhev', permissions should be set correctly for you
automatically.  Instead of summarising and interpreting what the debug
logs say (which is not useful), provide the debug logs.

However if it doesn't succeed in the conversion, then it's not going
to appear in RHEV.
