I also had the problem with a 0kb RAW-Image. And qemu didn't start with
this file under windows as host.
The problem seems to be that images >2GB don't work under Qemu-Windows.
Some time ago I read theres a problem with mingw with files >2GB. Maybe
that's the cause.

Also qcow images don't work under windows (here), even with filesize <2GB.

Try using an raw image <2GB and see if it works. It does here.
Hope it helps.
