oracle virtualbox copying hds doesnt work

On Windoz 7 64bit VBoxManage can be found in C:Program FilesOracleVirtualBox

Apparently one way to clone a vbo hd is

VBoxManage internalcommands sethduuid orac.vdi
UUID changed to: b534130a-XXXX-4e33-XXXX-9d64XXXX3ea2
but this does NOT work and you have use 'clonehd' instead !

UUID changed to: b534130a-XXXX-4e33-XXXX-9d64XXXX3ea2

VBoxManage clonehd orac.vdi orac2.vdi


‘VDI’. UUID: a1922153-9c96-4629-9eb9-c753e43664d8
