VirtualBox allows sharing VDI images between PCs.

Move VirtualBox .vdi to another PC

  1. On “new” PC, install the current VirtualBox software. On Ubuntu, this can be accomplished by:
    apt install virtualbox virtualbox-ext-pack virtualbox-guest-additions-iso
  2. On “new” PC, install VirtualBox Extension Pack.
  3. plug in USB HDD with VDI, and in VirtualBox click Machine → add, and select the .vbox file for the VDI.

Now you can share the same VDI between PCs. For example, share a Windows 10 VirtualBox guest image between PCs.
