I forgot to ask to you add the --perl flag, ie:

  virt-inspector --perl 5b5503fa-954f-42c8-b9a4-05a9a7b6ee9e

However ...

This presumably is the Windows guest after removing the Recovery
Console?  I would expect to have seen two operating systems being
displayed here if the Recovery Console was still installed.  It's
really the case where the Recovery Console is installed (and virt-v2v
fails) which is the interesting one.

By the way you might want to try out:

  http://people.redhat.com/~rjones/rhel6.1-libguestfs-preview/

Although these are not supported and might break RHEL 6.0 virt-v2v
(they shouldn't -- it's just I haven't tested this combination
together).
