Hello Support,

I have converted a vhd image to a vdi image using the following command in windows: vboxmanage convertdd disk.vhd disk.vdi and after a few minutes I tried to run it and got an error message "FATAL: No bootable medium found! System Halted"

Please help me.

You used the wrong command to convert the image. convertdd will treat the VHD file as a raw image which produces an unbootable VDI image. "VBoxManage clonehd <VHD File> <Path to output VDI> --format VDI" is what you need. Please reopen if the problem still persists after you converted the image with the right command.
