Virtual Box Clone Instance.

Once you have a solid instance of the OS you want there is no reason to reinstall it again. For that matter you risk having differences or making mistakes when reinstalling. The ideal way to start new instances is to clone an existing good base install.
Open Virtual Box Manager
Highlight the instance you want to clone.
Right click your instance and choose “Clone”
Choose a name for your new instance and choose “Reinitialize the Mac address of all cards”. Select “Next”.
The choose clone type screen will appear. Choose Clone Type “Full Clone” and press “Clone”.
The progress bar will display.
Once Complete your new instance will show up in the navigation bar.
