    33Doing a simple "diff" before and after the null edit shows the following: 
     4{{{ 
    45135c138 
    56<       <StorageController name="SATA Controller" type="AHCI" PortCount="30" useHostIOCache="false" IDE0MasterEmulationPort="0" IDE0SlaveEmulationPort="1" IDE1MasterEmulationPort="2" IDE1SlaveEmulationPort="3"/>

    78>       <StorageController name="SATA Controller" type="AHCI" PortCount="1" useHostIOCache="false" IDE0MasterEmulationPort="0" IDE0SlaveEmulationPort="1" IDE1MasterEmulationPort="2" IDE1SlaveEmulationPort="3"/>

    910So there is at least one problem, that the default of 30 causes problems for CentOS 4.6 (and perhaps other Linuxes).  Note that LibVirt does not itself provide the max port count -- that is hard-coded into VB 3.2.4 OSE at line 159 of "Main/StorageControllerImpl.cpp".  But there also might be a second problem, where the VB GUI silently changes the value of the maximum SATA port count -- why would it do this, and does it silently modify (perhaps just clamp within certain bounds) the values of other fields?
