UUID of the medium does not match the value stored in the media registry

If you try to load a VM to VBox and it name previously exists in the records with a different UUID, you will get this error.

NS_ERROR_FAILURE(0x80004005)

In VBox you will see a message that said your hard disk is inaccessible.

To fix it, you need replace the new UUID in the configuration (.vbox file) of your VM.

Copy from ~/.config/VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml the respective UUID from your virtual disk (see MachineEntry uuid).
After, replace the UUID in your .vbox configuration file inside your VM folder.

Enjoy it!
