Conversion from VMWARE VMDK to RAW to VDI under Windows ?

Description

Hello,

I tried to convert a VMWare single VMDK file to a raw disk using Qemu on Windows ( http://www.h7.dion.ne.jp/~qemu-win/) with the command "qemu-img convert <source-vmdk> <target-raw>, then using "convertdd <source-raw> <target-vdi>".

I want to use the snapshot feature within Virtual Box, therefore I try the conversion and do not use the VMDK file directly.

The process works fine without errors, however the resulting VDI fails to boot. Is there any "offical" way for the conversion under Windows?
