The OP is not a newbie.  He has stated that he has run VBox "since forever" and that F20 works fine in virt-manager. 

The last significant post from the OP would indicate he has it running under virt-manager and is not concentrating on trying to find a method to convert VBox VM's to run under virt-manager.
