 /dev/xvda1mkdir -p /boot/grub
cd /boot/grub

Convert the image to RAW format using VBoxManage

 VBoxManage clonehd CRUX.vdi CRUX.img --format RAW

Start a server, mount an appropriately sized volume

dd bs=1M of=/dev/xvf

NOTE: You will need to mount the image as /dev/sda *NOT* /dev/sda1 as the drive is partitioned
due to the conversion from a VirtualBox image

 PermitRootLogin without-password
 /etc/rc.d/sshd restart
