How do I inject Virtio drivers that are compatible with Oracle Linux and AHV?

Hey everyone,


I have an ova which is designed for VMWare. The OVA is 2.7 GB in size and is Oracle Linux 9.3.

When trying to deploy the OVA in Nutanix PC, it fails and doesn’t work. I’ve been researching and it seems that the vmdks inside the OVA need to be injected with the Virtio drivers that are compatible with AHV. 


I want to mention that I have used Nutanix Move to migrate a Virtual Machine from VMWare to Nutanix. The problem is that I need to redistribute these images and Nutanix Move creates images that are 120GB combined (which is the disk sizes but not the vmdk sizes, obviously). 


Any help will be much appreciated.

When trying to boot from the OVA I get:
