at the moment I am running this HVM guest config:

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/vg/hera_1,ioemu:hda,w','phy:/dev/vg/hera_2,ioemu:hdb,w','phy:/dev/vg/hera_3,ioemu:hdc,w','file:/iso/win2003cd1.iso,hdd:cdrom,r']

So I am not able to add any extra drives. I tried this config:

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/vg/hera_1,ioemu:sda,w','phy:/dev/vg/hera_2,ioemu:sdb,w','phy:/dev/vg/hera_3,ioemu:sdc,w','file:/iso/win2003cd1.iso,hdc:cdrom,r']

But after Windows 2003 Server booted from CD and installed all files the disks are not working after the first reboot. The driver windows 2003 uses is "sym_hi". Is it possible to use SCSI on a HVM guest? If yes how to change the virtual SCSI hardware used?

greetings Flo
