There are a few issues with how qemu-img creates the VHD.  The use of
qemu-img will very soon be not required, thanks to marcel@ adding VHD
support to mkimg(1).

In the meantime, can you try cloning the VHD disk, but instead of
a dynamically-allocated image, set it to be a fixed-size image?  I have
had very sporadic success with this, so cannot guarantee it will work.

The VMDK image, however, should work without issue, if you are unable to
get the VHD image to work.
