When configuring a storage controller via VBoxManage storagectl, the command rejects the --sataideemulation<1-4> parameter which it claims to accept:

$ VBoxManage createvm --name W8 --ostype Windows8_64 --register
Virtual machine 'W8' is created and registered.
UUID: 715d301b-a542-458d-b871-fedef7060987
Settings file: '/tmp/W8/W8.vbox'
$ VBoxManage storagectl W8 --name 'SATA Controller' --add sata --sataideemulation1 1

VBoxManage: error: Unknown option: --sataideemulation1

The same problem happens with --sataideemulation2, etc. The bug exists on both Linux and Windows hosts.

  • Summary changed from VBoxManage storagectl rejects --sataideemulation1 to VBoxManage storagectl rejects --sataideemulation1 => Fixed in SVN

Thanks for the report. Actually the IDE-on-SATA emulation was removed with VBox 4.2, so this option does indeed not exist anymore. The next maintenance release will contain fixed docs.
