Anyone had success moving their virtual image to a different Mac?

    Just wanted to know before I gave it a shot...has anyone transferred their virtual image between different Macs? Like from a Mini to a MacBook or from a MacBook Pro to an iMac. I'm hoping it is easily transferable because then I would be able to keep it on my external hard drive for use between my different Macs.

    Should work fine. I've not done it myself, but what I understand is if you copy the entire VM folder over, it should work on the other machine.

    What about Windows authentication with the MS mothership, though? Different machine, different world....

    That's the beauty of the chipset emulation engine: it's consistent across machines, so Windows shouldn't notice that it's been moved.

    I've opened my Parallels virtual machine on a Windows box for a brief time, just to do it. Worked fine for me.
