I see that your work is based, at least in part, on my previous patch and
research paper. Very nice.
A small note:
I suggest to move the whole section of "construct VM ()" from "new VM
wizard" and into Main Code.
This way it will allow us to construct both normal VMs *and* unattended VMs
from CLI, instead of GUI, and add all suggested hardware controllers and
I didn't do it my patch, because the change would be pretty invasive, and I
wanted to keep things clam and conservative.
Nowadays, if you create a VM from CLI (or API), you will need to manually
know which audio and which disk controller to use for a particular guest
OS, and if you try to create an Unattended Install VM from CLI, it will
break down awfully, . (even using IMachine::IUnattended Main API)
The whole "suggested hardware" mechanism for new VM needs to be moved from
GUI into Main API, "IMachine".
In file Main/idl/VirtualBox.xidl
You seem to be using a new parameter:
3815 <attribute name="imageIndex" type="unsigned short">
3817 The image index on installation CD\DVD used to install.
3818 Used only with Windows installation CD\DVD
Why is it needed ?
