The QEMU project is currently considering to move its bug tracking to another system. For this we need to know which bugs are still valid and which could be closed already. Thus we are setting older bugs to "Incomplete" now.
If you still think this bug report here is valid, then please switch the state back to "New" within the next 60 days, otherwise this report will be marked as "Expired". Or mark it as "Fix Released" if the problem has been solved with a newer version of QEMU already. Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.

  windows qemu-img create vpc/vhdx error

Status in QEMU:

Bug description:
  On windows, using qemu-img (version 2.11.90) to create vpc/vhdx
  virtual disk tends to fail. Here's the way to reproduce:

  1. Install qemu-w64-setup-20180321.exe

  2. Use `qemu-img create -f vhdx -o subformat=fixed disk.vhdx 512M` to create a vhdx:
     Formatting 'disk.vhdx', fmt=vhdx size=536870912 log_size=1048576 block_size=0 subformat=fixed

  3. Execute `qemu-img info disk.vhdx` gives the result, (note the `disk size` is incorrect):
     image: disk.vhdx
     file format: vhdx
     virtual size: 512M (536870912 bytes)
     disk size: 1.4M
     cluster_size: 8388608

  4. On Windows 10 (V1709), double click disk.vhdx gives an error:
     Make sure the file is in an NTFS volume and isn't in a compressed folder or volume.

     Using Disk Management -> Action -> Attach VHD gives an error:
     The requested operation could not be completed due to a virtual disk system limitation. Virtual hard disk files must be uncompressed and uneccrypted and must not be sparse.

  Comparison with Windows 10 created VHDX:

  1. Using Disk Management -> Action -> Create VHD:
     File name: win.vhdx
     Virtual hard disk size: 512MB
     Virtual hard disk format: VHDX
     Virtual hard disk type: Fixed size

  2. Detach VHDX

  3. Execute `qemu-img info win.vhdx` gives the result:
     image: win.vhdx
     file format: vhdx
     virtual size: 512M (536870912 bytes)
     disk size: 516M
     cluster_size: 33554432

  Comparison with qemu-img under Ubuntu:

  1. Version: qemu-img version 2.5.0 (Debian 1:2.5+dfsg-5ubuntu10.16),
  Copyright (c) 2004-2008 Fabrice Bellard

  2. qemu-img create -f vhdx -o subformat=fixed lin.vhdx 512M
     Formatting 'lin.vhdx', fmt=vhdx size=536870912 log_size=1048576 block_size=0 subformat=fixed

  3. qemu-img info lin.vhdx
     image: lin.vhdx
     file format: vhdx
     virtual size: 512M (536870912 bytes)
     disk size: 520M
     cluster_size: 8388608

  4. Load lin.vhdx under Windows 10 is ok

  The same thing happens on `vpc` format with or without
  `oformat=fixed`, it seems that windows version of qemu-img has some
  incorrect operation? My guess is that windows version of qemu-img
  doesn't handle the description field of vpc/vhdx, which leads to an
  incorrect `disk size` field.
