More information about using the PVSCSI-adapter and what the performance benefits are can be found in these documents: In some cases, it is not possible to boot a raw SCSI drive inside a virtual machine because the SCSI adapter in the physical computer and the BusLogic adapter in the virtual machine describe the drive in different ways.

If you have a disk with a boot sector written by a program running on the host, then try to boot that disk inside a virtual machine, the boot program can fail if the host geometry does not match the geometry used by the BusLogic virtual SCSI adapter.
