    I have a fixed-size vdi that I ran out of space on. I tried resizing it to no avail, so I tried vboxmanage.exe's clonehd command to clone the fixed vdi onto a dynamic one of larger size. I don't think the partition table came along for the ride, because the VM cries about therw being no bootable media when I try to use the new, cloned drive.

    Anyone familiar enough with Arch and VirtualBox to tell me what steps I should take next? I can't afford to screw it up, because I don't have a stable enough internet connection here to reinstall Arch.
