Moving VirtualBox VM's

Today, I moved some VirtualBox VM's from my older Asus G46vw gaming laptop to my newer Lenovo Y50-70 gaming laptop. The process was actually relative painless. The Asus G46vw had a i5-3230M CPU, while the Lenovo Y50-70 had a i7-4710HQ CPU. The two processors were similar enough that there was no problem running the virtual machines on the new computer. The following are steps to moving the VM's:

  1. Enable visualization on the new computer, if necessary. See "VT-x is disabled in the BIOS" article.
  2. Copy your existing VM's from "%UserProfile%\VirtualBox VMs" to the same location on your new computer.
  3. Launch VirtualBox on the new computer.
  4. Add each VM by going to "Machine" -> "Add..." and select the .vbox file.

Title: VirtualBox Ubuntu 14.04 LTS - Guest Additions Installation Failure
Weblog: GearHack
Excerpt: I have installed the VirtualBox 4.3.28 on my newer Lenovo Y50, just a step up from the 4.3.26 that was installed on my older Asus G46vw. Upon Moving VirtualBox VM's to my new notebook computer, I have found that Ubuntu 14.04 LTS VM runs perfectly fine... until I have updated it through the Software . . .
