The Select SCSI Controller Type page enables you to select one of the following types of SCSI controllers. The choice of SCSI controller does not affect whether your virtual disk is an IDE or SCSI disk.

The IDE adapter is always ATAPI. The default for your guest operating system is already selected. Older guest operating systems default to the BusLogic adapter.

If you create an LSI Logic virtual machine and add a virtual disk that uses BusLogic adapters, the virtual machine boots from the BusLogic adapters disk. LSI Logic SAS is available only for virtual machines with hardware version 7. Disks with snapshots might not experience performance gains when used on LSI Logic SAS and LSI Logic Parallel adapters.

Choose one of the following SCSI controller types:

BusLogic Parallel
