Yep, VirtualBox is picky, you need to remove the Disk first from the known devices
It's better that I be experimenting with this from a non-mission-critical system. And, I can, and will, as time permits.
I'm using USBbooting with VirtualBox for year's, it took a while, but is very usefull, when creating and testing LiveUSB's.

The adventure ended successfully after many days of testing. MX installed on a SSD drive how? Incredible !!

The snapshot file burned in pendrive gave me a black screen after dozens of tests, as I have solved is textbook, perhaps. On reboot I chose failsafe and MX appeared like a miracle. I installed the distro in SSD through the icon and the work was successful without the driver of the video card in use ( Cayman XT [Radeon HD 6970] driver not installed before creating snapshot.
