You can create image as .raw format, The rule of the migration image is as following:

1. Support CentOS version  5.x / 6.x / 7.x

Ubuntu   10.04 / 12.04 / 14.04

Aliyun Linux    5.7 / 15.1

Debian    6.x / 7.x

openSUSE    13.1

SUSE    11sp1 / 11sp2 / 11sp3

Gentoo

2. Check the following configuration file whether to be changed or not

/etc/issue*, /etc/*-release, /etc/*_version

/boot/grub/menu.lst, /boot/grub/grub.conf

/etc/fstab

/etc/shadow

/etc/selinux/config

3. Make sure has not much more disk mounted in system

4. Don't fdisk the disk section, currently only support single root section.

5. Check the system disk is not full

6. Don't update the system file or folder such as /sbin, /bin, /lib*

Currently we don't have the tool to transfer  physical machine to image, you can search in internet.
