Hello Melkii,
For a Backup to Virtual conversion, the only supported Operating Systems are: 
Windows Server 2003 (Service Pack 2 or later)
Windows Server 2003 R2 (Service Pack 2 or later)
Windows Server 2008
Windows Server 2008 R2 (only 64 bit). 
You may refer to page 38 of the Software Compatibility List for Backup Exec 2012 to get more details on it:

Thanks and Regards,
Siddhant Saini

I am guessing the query was related to Xen and redhat KM hosts and sid`s information was  related to the virtual machies supported for conversion.
