Workaround: use absolute path names instead of just file names (or relative path names).

Replying to klaus:

Below You find effect after used absolute path names instead just file names:

The command was : VboxManage clonehd '/Users/adamlasota/VirtualBox/Czyste maszyny/SQL2008.vhd' '/Users/adamlasota/VirtualBox/Czyste maszyny/SQL2008.vdi' --format VDI

I'm very puzzled. Apparently you have the image already registered, but VirtualBox fails to find it when looking for it by name, and thus tries to register it again. If I only could reproduce this. Spaces in filenames are certainly not the issue.

A possible workaround would be to unregister the vhd file, but that's just a guess.

I don't know how VirtualBox try to find it (by name or UUID). Fact is this command worked on earlier version. At this moment I makes the new copy of VHD by copying manually the VHD file and using the command "VBoxManage internalcommands setvdiuuid" which works without any problems.

The algorithm to locate the file hasn't changed lately, which is why I'm so puzzled. VirtualBox first tries to interpret the parameter as a UUID, which obviously fails. Then it tries to find the image by name, and that always works for me when I specify an absolute path.

The error you get happens after the unexpected failure to find the image.

Do you remember which VirtualBox version worked for you? Maybe there's a subtle change which has some unintended side effect on OSX...
