I looked in the xml file for the machine and the controller is right. 
But in the new machine I had hooked the hard disk to the SATA 
controller. Moved it to the ide controller and the machine started as it 
should :-)

Guest additions was no problem. Just said there was a new version and 
then I installed them.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
