All the physical disks are connected to a regular SATA port on the motherboard.

Which option to is the best to choose when creating a new VM?

Thank you,
Unless your guest does not support it the default VirtIO-SCSI should provide the best performance and features.

I hope this helps!

Thank you.

One more question if I may - Can you emulate a AES-NI CPU on non-AES physical CPU setup?
