Converting Ubuntu-Minimal 22.04 cloud image from .img file to VirtualBox .vdi disk image

sl flag

I'm trying to use Ubuntu-Minimal 22.04 pre-built cloud image in VirtualBox. I've dowloaded .img file which (according to file util) has QEMU QCOW2 Image (v2) so I'm trying to convert it using qemu-img tool:

qemu-img convert -O vdi ubuntu-22.04-minimal-cloudimg-amd64.img disk.vdi

It is being converted sussessfully, but when I attach converted disk image to VBox VM and try to start VM it fails with message "GRUB_FORCE_PARTUUID set, attempting initrdless boot".

What is wrong here ?

Nothing is wrong. The same image as the KVM guest gives the same output. That's a console output. That doesn't mean the OS isn't booting.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
