Re: [PLUG] Convert VirtualBox to QEMU

Old, but should still be relevant/still working:

tl;dr summary: ova = tar with ovf plus vmdk. ovf is just a proposed configuration. Converting vmdks to qcow isn't complex.

Good luck, have fun, let us know if you have any trouble.

I have a couple of VirtualBox VMs (.ova files) that I'd like to run on

I tried just importing them as an existing image which told me that the
disk is not bootable.
Has anyone got any pointers on how to convert these .ova's to something
qemu/kvm can use?
