      Description

      VirtualBox documentation at https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch05.html recommends:

      Given this large choice of storage controllers, you may ask yourself which one to choose. In general, you should avoid IDE unless it is the only controller supported by your guest. Whether you use SATA, SCSI or SAS does not make any real difference. The variety of controllers is only supplied for VirtualBox for compatibility with existing hardware and other hypervisors.

      However PMM OVA appliance still uses IDE for operating system:

      $ fgrep -A1 "StorageController name" PMM-Server-2018-07-27-1152.ovf
              <StorageController name="IDE" type="PIIX4" PortCount="2" useHostIOCache="true" Bootable="true">
                <AttachedDevice type="HardDisk" hotpluggable="false" port="0" device="0">
      --
              <StorageController name="SATA Controller" type="AHCI" PortCount="30" useHostIOCache="false" Bootable="true" IDE0MasterEmulationPort="0" IDE0SlaveEmulationPort="1" IDE1MasterEmulationPort="2" IDE1SlaveEmulationPort="3">
                <AttachedDevice type="HardDisk" hotpluggable="false" port="1" device="0">
      

      Suggested Fix:

      Use recommended SATA/SCSI/SAS for everything.
