Hello Virginia,

I've never migrated a VMware VM to KVM in the way you have just described,
but I was wondering, have you tried converting the images to another format
(RAW for instance) with "qemu-img convert"? Maybe it will detect that it's
the same disk and merge both vmdks into a single file...
