No I've to mount part1 and can access to the data?

Little bit

I managed to copy the data with dd to an external disk.
Then I will try this on the other machine:

1. connect usb-hdd
2. create a new vm with the same settings as the old one
3. then use dd to copy the data in the right volume? like:

dd if=/media/vm-100-disk-1 of=/dev/dm-X bs=1M



PS sorry go out as PM, this was a mistake,..
