Share VirtualBox .vdi between PCs

VirtualBox allows sharing VDI images between PCs.

How to move VirtualBox .vdi to another PC

  1. On “new” PC, install the current VirtualBox software.
  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, I share a Windows 10 VirtualBox guest image between PCs so that I can run Windows-only software. Of course, this works on one PC at a time.
