Convert VMWare image to VirtualBox

For all the good things about VirtualBox listed here, I switched from VMWare to VirtualBox. The easy explanation for that is

  1. VirtualBox is fast
  2. It has snapshot capability
  3. Good compatibility

As provided in this documentation, I used the following process:-


“D:\Program Files\VMware\OVFTool\ovftool.exe” “D:\Libraries\Documents\Virtual Machines\Ubuntu 64-bit Server 10.04.2 – Copy\Ubuntu 64-bit Server 10.04.2.vmx” “D:\VirtualBox\Ubuntu 64-bit Server 10.04.2.ovf”

“D:\\Program Files\\VMware\\VMware OVF Tool”\\ovftool.exe “Clone of Oracle Enterprise Linux.vmx”
