If you instruct the New Virtual Machine wizard to create a new virtual disk during a custom configuration, the wizard prompts you to select the virtual hard disk type for the virtual machine.

You can set up a virtual disk as an IDE disk for any guest operating system. You can set up a virtual disk as a SCSI disk for any guest operating system that has a driver for the LSI Logic or BusLogic SCSI controller available in the virtual machine.

You can change virtual disk node and mode settings after a virtual machine is created.
