Are you still using VEB 1.5? Because in that case, what can be done is to create a new empty VM, boot the VM on our recovery media, and then do a BMR from there. The only thing we saw (from time to time) is that the restore came from a server with RAID drivers and that it could cause an issue where you needed to remove the drivers after the BMR. But it works nonetheless
With VAW and VBR, we are working on some additional restore possibilities.
