Hardware disk to vbox vdi

January 01, 2019

Hardware virtualization

Tested with Windows 7

  1. disk2vhd: create a vhd (without vhdx!)
  2. transform the vhd into vdi with VBoxManage clonehd
  3. setup a vm with VirtualBox & test if you can boot the vdi
  4. Check the drivers, eventually remove the PCI bus driver if you get Code 12 errors. In my special case I had trouble with AMD pci express 3gio filter
  5. Re-activation of the windows key in the VM (do not use old system anymore!!)
