Description Gene Czarcinski 2009-07-13 11:02:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently, when virtual disks (volumes) are created when a guest is created, the disk adapter interface is selected by the software.  Defaults are good but you should be able to specify others.  For example, F11 supports virtio, ide AND scsi but the interface is predefined as virtio.  Similarly, F9 will get IDe interfaces.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F11 + preview

We do this for the NIC model, so it might make sense for the disk adaptor too

Moving to upstream tracker
Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2010-03-01 15:50:41 EST
This is already available with virt-install via --disk ...,bus=scsi or whatever. And now with the ability to 'Customize guests before install' in virt-manager, the option is available there. Closing as UPSTREAM
