I can confirm that sethduuid on VHD file also does not work with Windows Vista (32bit).

+1, running into the same issue on VirtualBox 2.1.4 running on OS 10.5.6.

+1

It would be a great feature if, while importing an image and a duplicate UUID is encountered, VirtualBox can offer to automatically change the UUID of the image. With the appropriate warnings.

Thanks for looking into this issue.

Can you tell us when this change will make it into a release (or put another way, when is the next release due :-)?

comment:7 Changed 5 years ago by frank

  • Version changed from VirtualBox 2.1.4 to VirtualBox 2.2.2

Sorry, but we cannot promise any ETA. But the next maintenance release will usually be released in a few weeks.

still cannot open copied (/cloned) vbox vms on windoz 7 running vbox 4.0.12 without getting the duplicate UUID error!

This is not what the bug was about. If you copy the image then the UUID is not changed. After copying you have to change the UUID. Or use the VBox function to clone the image -- then the UUID is changed automatically.
