Comment 5 Ademar Reis 2014-02-17 21:28:05 UTC
So this bug is about two problems:

 - "The following two emulated sound device is also available" (there's only one)
 - Missing documentation for AHCI, which is a storage device/driver

AHCI is tech-preview and should be used only with Q35 (ICH9). Q35 is also tech-preview and is a system component ("host northbridge", or simply "host PCI bridge", as used to document I440FX, which is the default).

So both AHCI and Q35 should be documented as tech-preview. The alternative is to not document them in the administration guides at all, which is also fine by me.
