The challenge here is I never get to look at the resulting disk image because virt-p2v-server gets rid of it right after it finishes building it.  If it's happy with /winnt then maybe it's looking for some other file - I wonder what it wants?  If the log would tell us specifically what it's missing, we could fix it on the source physical machine and try again.

Which version of virt-v2v and libguestfs is this?

libguestfs should detect \winnt as the %systemroot%.  You can check
by doing:

  virt-inspector2 Guest | grep -i systemroot
