Subject: [Xen-users] Max hard disks supported by XCP 1.6

I would like to use nas4free under xcp 1.6.
I install it under full HVM using "other install media".
Now I am attaching 4 hdds as external disks.
The vm sees at most two hdds, I suppose because of bios 
support (1 boot + 1 cdrom + 2 hdds= 4 hdds).

I need to use more disks, is it possible?

If not, it seems to me a serious limit.

Thought so as well, initially.

It is just how you look at it....
Do you need _all_ of your disks during installation?
I mean, after installation you don't need the cd/dvd-rom anymore.

Other storage area's (/srv, /home) can always be added by means of 
NFS/SMB/iSCSI later on.

If you really need to give to domU a large number of raw devices, one might do 
pci-forwarding of a sata/scsi-card.
