There's no harm in the settings.

Thats not true.
hdtype=ahci is not the default, and as you have seen no unplug happens
for this kind of emulated hardware. No idea if that is on purpose. But
in the end there is little gain in having emulated IDE vs.  AHCI. Try to
use xvda instead of hda.

Got that completely backwards. Thought, mistakenly, hdtype=ahci does not 'emulate'.

As pointed out,

"... adds ich9 disk controller in AHCI mode and uses it with upstream qemu to **emulate** disks instead of IDE ...



does exactly what's suggested. On installer launch, it now only sees the assigned disks ... all of which are xvdX.

Once installed, the non-UEFI openSUSE Guest boots successfully.
