Hmm, what is a ".raw.tar.gz" file? That suffix makes no sense to me...

How large is the file?

We support raw disk images and tarballs with OS trees in them, both
compressed and non-compressed.

There's currently a safety limit against overly large images enforced,
of 8GiB. If the indicated image is larger than that, and that's
intended we should probably bump this safety limit substantially (32G?
64G?), please file a github issue asking for this if this is the
case. Or even better prep a PR, the fix is trivial:
