Default Yay, how to put Windows XP on KVM LVM

May we all thank Frippz for the procedure to get Windows XP working as LVM in a KVM guest!
I think the reason direct copy doesn't work is that it retains the MBR in a different location for qcow, but LVM only functions as a raw disk... (That is probably why my LVM install isn't working: I didn't specify raw.)

(Removed the quote because it was mangled)
So: Install Windows to a qcow file, qemu-img convert it to raw, dd that to LVM, and boot LVM.
