How many hard drives can I add via WinUAE?

I had ten in mind, and I hope that would fit in with the DH0: to DH9: convention, but I am just wondering if it is possible? There is a long story behind the reason why.

That has nothing to do with the DH0: to DH9:!

It depends only on the used HD-Controler und the number of them.
Normal SCSI: 7 Drives
Wide-SCSI: 15 Drives
IDE: 2 or 4 Drives.
You can use more than one controler at the same time and they don't have to be the same Model/Type.

I had a config with at least 15 Harddisks.
3 or 4 Amiga HD images and "a few" PC drives/partitions.

AmigaDOS does not have any limits. UAE harddrives list is limited to about 20 or so.

Also, you can make 10 partitions on 1 hard disk (RDB).

There is no RDB partition number limit either.
