comment Convert Parallels VM to Virtual Box VM?
Unfortunately I tried this and when taking it off... it says 'You are using a 64-bit client OS and this is required and will be enabled automatically'... If I start the machine and ignore warnings, it keeps trying to boot infinitely. Would using a different version of VirtualBox let it run the Parallels machine without this?

comment Which Linux distro does not require me to upgrade very often?
There are so many reasons to choose one over another but other than frequency of upgrades, what are you looking for? It would be hard to get meaningful answers otherwise.

comment Convert Parallels VM to Virtual Box VM?
Thank you for your patience. Getting there. After conversion, VirtualBox accepts to add the disk and creates a VM. Only it does not start, it gives the error: 'VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration has been enabled, but is not operational.... Please ensure you have VT-x/AMD-V enabled in the BIOS of your host computer'. Well, I tried but I have no such option. Parallels has no trouble running the VM, so maybe it is not 'properly migrated'. What can I do?

comment Convert Parallels VM to Virtual Box VM?
Getting closer, updated VirtualBox to 4.0.4.12 which now sees the .hdd file but gives an error: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) - I tried with the VM not running and running, same error.

VirtualBox is 3.0.6 and OpenSUSE is 11.2. I've been trapped at 11.2 because of Parallels.

comment Convert Parallels VM to Virtual Box VM?
It seems to be looking for .vhd, ,vdi or ,vmdk files... which my Parallels VM does not have. Do I need to rename something? I've got an empty .hdd file and .xml file in the directory of the VM.

comment Is it faster to have two smaller hard drives or one big one?
Well, I have not tried most motherboards :) I did manage to get within 15% of the theoretical maximum with a plenty of them as part of a previous position I held.

comment Is there a way to run Windows without installing it?
Awesome, it worked! One scary thing though: Each time you click on a drive XP does not recognize (every Linux partition), it prompts 'Do you want to format it?'

This one seems like an Windows executable. I'll have to try it in my VM, we may have a recursion problem otherwise ;)

Unfortunately, the one I need this time is a Windows executable.
