Download AppleNForceATA.kext

nforce 430 chipset mobo southbridge

Makes OS X and the installer work with the nForce 430 chipset.

More specifically, allows OS X/installer to see the SATA and IDE (yes, IDE, too!) devices plugged in to your computer, including hard drives and disk drives.

This kext does NOT make nForce LAN or anything else work, just SATA and IDE/ATA HDDs and ODDs.


Works great with the Compaq Presario SR55 series!

On which OS works this kext?


I used it with OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), the computer I tested it with had an AMD processor, so I couldn't really try out Lion or ML.. or Mavericks.

Anyone know if this is working with Mavericks?

Why oh Why oh Why do people always expect other to try the things they can't be ass to do themselves? We are all on this site to learn - therefore we are to ((ALL)) to try things out for ourselves, its all part of the fun in doing what were doing.


Now do what you can, hare what you have learn and that way everybody will get further much faster - I am now going to try this for myself, if i have ad good luck, or bad luck i shell return with what has be discovered. 

This kext cames from SL where it works perfectly.


Now I m trying to use it under Mavericks.

you can do the test

install it on a USB key with right ownership of course

and try to load it in terminal

# kextload AppleNforceATA.kext

you get Kernel Panic



    Dependency :com.apple.iokit.IOATAFamily(2.5.2)

    Dependency :com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily(2.8)


because in Mavericks/Sys/Lib/Ext/System.kext/content/plugins

IOKit.kext, libkern.kext,BSDkernel.kext and Mach.kext are not at expected version from AppleNforceATA.kext



AppleNforceATA.kext refers to IOATAFamily.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext who are not at expected version too


So if someone finds a way to make it working under Mavericks please explain .....
