How do remove the default storage pool from a libvirt hypervisor, so that even after libvirtd restarts there is NO storage pool

I want to remove the default storage pool from my virt-manager AND NOT HAVE IT COME BACK BY ITSELF, EVER. I can destroy it and undefine it all I want, but when i restart libvirtd (for me thats “sudo systemctl restart libvirtd” in an arch linux terminal window), and restart virt-manager, the default storage pool is back, just like Frankenstein.

I don’t want a storage pool of any kind. I simply want to move from the dual-boot I have now (arch linux and windows) to running the two OS simultaneously. I intend to provision two physical disk partitions on the host to be disks on the guest, and I can do this via the xml that defines the domain.

Or am i required to have a storage pool no matter what?
