i've got ubuntu 13.10 server installed and running fine as a hyper-v guest on server 2012, it can see the "IDE" disks but it can't see anything attached to the SCSI controller.

i'm aware of the limitations of not being able to boot from the SCSI controller, however i want to add more than 3 extra physical disks to this system, which means i've run out of "IDE" ports, and they have to be connected via the hyper-v guest's scsi controller.

does anyone know if there's a way to get ubuntu to recognise the disk if it's set as a SCSI disk instead of IDE in the hyper-v host settings?
