Assuming I have an OVA file created primarily for VirtualBox v4. Can I go from that to a working Proxmox VM?

Never mind. It's as simple as:
# qemu-img convert ZEG-2.0.0rc1.ova -O qcow2 ZEG-2.0.0rc1.qcow2

I had split open the .ova into the .vmdk and .ovf files, and then followed the wiki for vmdk migration, but I could not convert the .vmdk. For some reason, the .vmdk alone caused qemu-img to choke. Not splitting the archive allowed the conversion to work without failure.

Converting vmdk from Virtualbox 4 OVF export fails too.

Trying to convert the whole ova seems work but the VM wont boot the converted qcow2 disk....
