  • How to Convert OVA/OVF to VHD

    Method for conversion

    1.VirtualBox

    Extract .vmdk from OVA using 7zip.
    Install Virtualbox
    Run from command line : VBoxManage.exe" clonemedium --format vhd infile.vmdk outfile.vhd

    or for older versions of Virtualbox

    VBoxManage.exe" clonehd --format vhd infile.vmdk outfile.vhd

    2. qemu-img for windows
    Great command line tool to convert from ova to vhd or vhdx

    3. CloneVDI
    There is a free GUI program out there called CloneVDI that does not require any command line and has a few extra options. Did not used this one yet.
