Munib Ahmed posted an excellent step by step guide how to run an existing virtual machine on Hyper-V into Virtualbox.

This guide allows you for example to run the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 Demo VM in any workstation or laptop without Hyper-V.

Steps to overtake the issue:
1 – Add a new internal networking card in virtual box
