[Resolved] Export ova from AMD machine import on intel machine

Postby Syresham007 » 20. Jul 2019, 15:02

Sorry for such a basic question. I tried to export an ova fgile from an AMD Threadripper machine and then import it onto an Intel i7 machine.I get an error:

E_invalidarg followed by some hex

Both hosts are running windows 10. Both virtual machines are Ubuntu 18.04. Should this work?

Yes it does work

I think I was getting a problem because it was a new install of vbox on a new laptop and I hadn't installed guest additions on it

Once I did that, it seemed to work

Glad you figured out the solution. Marking as [Resolved].
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
