Share VirtualBox .vdi between PCs

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-equivalent ReactOS VirtualBox guest image between PCs.
