Indeed. I've fixed a few others too.

How about:

It is possible to avoid specifying replacement kernels in the virt-v2v
config
file by ensuring that the guest has an appropriate kernel installed prior to
conversion. If your guest uses a Xen paravirtualised kernel (it would be
called
something like kernel-xen or kernel-xenU), you can install a regular kernel,
which won't reference a hypervisor in its name, along side it. You shouldn't
make this newly installed kernel your default kernel because the chances are
Xen will not boot it. virt-v2v will make it the default during conversion.
