Allow disk UUID change/delete when importing an already existing disk

Description (last modified by michael) (diff)

I imported a VM, then deleted the VM from the GUI. The harddisk file was still on the disk. I imported again the same VM. VB told me "there is a disk with the same UUID still present".

Suggestion :

allow the user to choose between 1) overwrite existing file on disk 2) import the VM ignoring the harddisk file (i.e. only create the VM in the GUI and attach the harddisk file on disk as the primary HD)
