Just in case, are you sure it really is a qcow2 format? Just asking
because I recently discovered that image files I created with qemu-img
as qcow2 appears to had been converted or created as raw instead. When
I googled about this, it seems that libvirt does not check what type
of disk file it is, and assumes raw unless specified.

So your qcow2 and img file might actually still be .raw once libvirt
gets hold of it.
