  2. Select File Menu, and click Export Appliances
  3. Choose your desired guest operating system that you want to use.
  4. click next to create a ovf  (Open Virtualization Format) of your guest os.
  5. Now, copy your guestos.ovf file to Ubuntu and run VirtualBox.
  6. Select File Menu, and click Import Appliances
  7. Select guestos.ovf file and click next.
  8. Boom ! You got it !

Cheers !
