Thanks for the info.
In the mean time after installing virtio-win on proxy host I retried with
the same version of virt-v2v provided with 4.1.9:
and then selecting and injecting it in the import window and the VM
correctly starts with virtio drivers (version after a
reboot requested (first starts remains in black window for a couple of
minutes and then asks to restart)
It also has qxl drivers (
But the VM remains as "Other OS" and obviously has no hv_ optimization.
I'm going to try the new version as you suggested.
It would be nice also to have virtio-scsi option and not only the virtio
option directly in import function....

BTW: I see that in case a target VM with the same name of source exists,
I'm given an error and I can't change the VM name on destination....
This seems to me a big limitation, because forces to rename the source VM
or rename a pre-existing VM at destination with the same name....
