VirtualBox - Changing UUID of an hard drive

Hi all!

If you want to copy a VirtualBox's virtual machine, you need to change the UUID of the hard drive. The UUID is an unique identifier for the virtual hard drives (.vdi). To change the UUID, go with the console where your virtual hard drive is, and type this command:
VBoxManage internalcommands setvdiuuid WinXP_IE8.vdi

Where WinXP_IE8.vdi is the name of your virtual hard drive.
