Oracle VirtualBox Failed to import appliance.

Oracle VirtualBox installed on an Oracle Linux Box.

Downloaded the template and extracted the file OVM_OL6U1_x86_64_PVM.ova

From within Oracle VirtualBox, File---->Import Appliance was selected.

Navigated to the location of the OVM_OL6U1_x86_64_PVM.ova file.

Upon clikcing the NEXT button, the following error was returned.

I thought the file may be corrupt and attempted to delete and re-extract but encountered the same error.

Any idea?

Here is the error:

Failed to import appliance /Downloads/VirtualBoxTemplates/OracleLinux6Update1/OVM_OL6U1_x86_64_PVM.ova.

Error reading "/Downloads/VirtualBoxTemplates/OracleLinux6Update1/OVM_OL6U1_x86_64_PVM.ova": Hard disk item with instance ID 5 specifies invalid parent 0, line 85.

Component: Appliance
Interface: IAppliance {3059cf9e-25c7-4f0b-9fa5-3c42e441670b}
