If you manage to get a disk image from Xen , remember you can also use
qm importdisk ( see qm help importdisk)

If you have a real OVF which is not recognized by PVE, please check
first with the ovftool from VmWare if the format is right
( ovftool --verifyOnly /path/to_my.ovf)

If you have an OVF which passes this test successfully and is recognized
by PVE, please submit a bug report in our bugzilla.
