I am running KVM on Ubuntu 19.10.  The version is 4.0.

I need to get an IDE controller so I can boot the Windows guest on KVM.

IDE isn't an option in virt-manager.

When I try to use an IDE controller from the command line I get an
unsupported error message.  I have tried different machine types as well
(pc vs q35)

How would I get an IDE controller in KVM?



The generic sata controller doesn't work?
Which version of Windows are you using?

Hi Peter.

I am trying to migrate windows server 2008 R2.

No, the generic SATA controller didn't work.

When booting it gives you the BSOD with the 7B error code, which is boot drive inaccessible.

To migrate the machine I needed to boot the machine with VirtualBox with an IDE controller for the boot disk and an extra sata disk.  That seems to get the right SATA drivers installed. Then I can use KVM to boot it as a SATA disk.
