I create this entry because there's same error on your forum with another ovf file ( http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=26617)

So seems more a bug in OVF import than a wrong ovf file...

At least a more explicit error message could be useful to fix it

  • Version changed from VirtualBox 3.1.2 to VirtualBox 3.1.6

This most likely is not an issue with the OVF files at all, but with the hard disk image. So not surprising that nothing changed with VirtualBox 3.1.6 - it has no changes to the VMDK code.

Converting the image from the compressed form to a normal, uncompressed image fails. Without knowing more about myfile-disk1.vmdk it's difficult to help. Is there any publicly available OVF appliance which triggers the same issue? Would save the effort of uploading your image for analysis.

Me too with 3.2.8. I exported an appliance from Ubuntu 10.04 (with Win2k as guest), installed 8.04.4 in my system, and tried to import that appliance. Then I got this error. I got first stuck with the SHA1 checksum error, which I managed to workaround editing the SHA1 file. I can't tell if the SHA1 error was due to a known issue or by a file corruption indeed. After this, I got the clone medium error. I created a new VM, so that VirtualBox created the clone medium successfully, then imported again. Same error. I went on to the VM settings and "freed" (not sure if this is the correct word) the virtual disk and tried again. Same error. It seems the appliance is healthy, but unusable due to a difficulty in creating the virtual disk. Best regards, Emerson
