VirtualBox ide/sata

Simple question (perhaps too simple) will VirtualBox work with a sata connected host? New hardrive!

I have run vbox on a host sata for the last couple of years.

If you actually mean the vm....newer vbox binaries allow you to emualate a sata drive so its all good

ide/sata vbox

Thanks, once knowing it is possible it's worth persevering. It is now up and running.
