This problem happened to me when i tried to duplicate disks on Virtualbox , i wanted to share this information with you so if you got this issue you know how to resolve it:)
first i made a copy of working image VDI using the command :
pirat9@linux-ab6e:~/.VirtualBox/HardDisks> cp ubuntu.vdi ubuntu2.vdi
Then i tried to create a new guest OS with this ubuntu2.dvi disk :
To reslove this issue . you have to make a diffecrent UUID for the cloned disk
Open terminal and go to the directory where the new disk exist and type this command :
VBoxManage internalcommands sethduuid
pirat9@linux-ab6e:~/.VirtualBox/HardDisks> VBoxManage internalcommands sethduuid ubuntu2.vdi
Sun VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.1.4
(C) 2005-2010 Sun Microsystems, Inc.
All rights reserved.
UUID changed to: d7e1f066-aa02-45ef-a50a-ada4e7ae8d4a
Now try again to add the disk, is working :)
