Ticket #6837 (closed defect: fixed)
EFI bios failt to detect HDD's attached to the SATA -> fixed in SVN

|Version:||VirtualBox 3.2.0||Keywords:||EFI AHCI SATA|
When the virtual machine is set to use EFI it is impossible to boot from any disk attached to the emulated SATA controller.
To reproduce: Create a new VM, set it to use EFI, delete all disk controllers. Then add one SATA AHCI controller and attach any HDD to it (say, to the SATA port 0). Try to power on the machine and it will get into EFI shell after some time. Use "map" command to display current device mappings and notice that there are no maps defined. Use "devices" command and notice that there are no block disk devices found.
Power off the vm, delete SATA controller, add standard IDE instead and attach an HDD to it. Try to boot up the VM, get into EFI shell, issue "map" and notice that there are block devices maps found. Issue "devices" and notice that the IDE controller and HDD were detected.
Confirmed to happen on Virtual Box 3.2.0 on CentOS 5 32bit PAE (RHEL5) host and on Fedora 9 32bit PAE host.
