What you need to do is to make or download a virt-p2v ISO, and boot
the physical machine using that.

You can make the ISO by following the instructions here:

http://libguestfs.org/virt-p2v-make-disk.1.html
http://libguestfs.org/virt-p2v-make-kickstart.1.html

but you may find it easier to download one that we provide:

http://oirase.annexia.org/virt-p2v/Fedora-22/
or http://oirase.annexia.org/virt-p2v/RHEL-7.2-preview/

You cannot run the virt-p2v program directly on the source physical
machine.  It has to be booted off the ISO.
