I don't believe we support the console for fullvirt machines.  Try
using 'virt-viewer' instead, or if you don't have that then use
vncviewer to connect to the right port.

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