Hello Nahum,


My apologize in the meantime I had found the solution with changing the 
IDE with the virtio, the ide is indeed limit to 4 devices but now it's 
running perfectly  thanks ;)

But another question, do you have experience with adding raw devices in 
KVM ?


Thanks in advance.


Kind Regards,


Dirk
