Remove Hard Disk virtio

I have a Mac VM with Ventura running on it. I have added some virtio disks to it and now I want to remove one disk from the System.
I am unsure if I can strait remove it from the hardware tab of the VM. I am afraid that i will have some booting errors later.
The hard drive has only 3 Folders in it and nothing related to the System.

We can't answer that, it's your system and you installed it. It'll most probably just be fine.

Take a snapshot and try for yourself and if you have no storage that supports it, just detach the disk, start the VM and see for yourself. If there are problems, shutdown/stop the vm and attach the disk again.
