Where is enum STORAGE_BUS_TYPE defined? I see GuestDiskBusType (via
qga/qapi-schema.json's 'enum':'GuestDiskBusType'), but if
STORAGE_BUS_TYPE is a type declared by some external project, we are
probably better off writing a two-way conversion table or switch
statement, rather than relying on the two enums currently happening to
have identical values (but where that might break if we accidentally
rearrange our .json QAPI file or if the external file changes their
enum).  In fact, it looks like win2qemu[] is supposed to be that table,
but it was incorrectly written.  You WANT to do:

diff --git i/qga/commands-win32.c w/qga/commands-win32.c
index d40d61f605c..6b67f16faf1 100644
--- i/qga/commands-win32.c
+++ w/qga/commands-win32.c

-static STORAGE_BUS_TYPE win2qemu[] = {
+static GuestDiskBusType win2qemu[] = {
     [BusTypeUnknown] = GUEST_DISK_BUS_TYPE_UNKNOWN,
     [BusTypeScsi] = GUEST_DISK_BUS_TYPE_SCSI,
     [BusTypeAtapi] = GUEST_DISK_BUS_TYPE_IDE,

with no casts needed, either in the table or in the function that
references the table.
