Migrating to a new computer

Postby mattymonkey » 29. May 2008, 17:56

Hi, I was wondering if there was anything special I needed to do to migrate my guests to my new Mac.

Is it as simple as copying the virtual drive's .vdi file and creating a new virtual machine and pointing it to the old .vdi?

I have XP guests, Ubuntu, and CentOS.

Thanks.

It *should* be as simple as that. Most likely this will do.

if you use the Mac Migration Assistant to move to your new mac all of this is taken care of.
