The VirtualBox also support the vdi format so in the end you really need to convert the qcow2 image.
I found this error when trying to handle a qcow2 format image within virtualBox which prompted me to demo how to remove snapshots.
( here's the typical error )
( here's list of snapshots using the qemu-img command )
( the same image after we deleted the snapshots using the qemu-img command )
In the end I took my "qcow2" image and converted it to "vmdk" format to use in Oracle's VirtualBox.
qemu-img check -f qcow2 radius.qcow2
qemu-img convert -O vmdk ./radius.qcow2 radius1.vmdk
