slashack, you are a freaking GROSO! A hero! No less.

I've been looking for a solution to this problem for 3 weeks, I even went to change my RAM (I had to tell the guys at the shop that I was running Windows!) and today, when I got my new RAM and the problem persisted I started thinking about OS X and then I though of a Kext issue.... so I googled my problem looking for a kext for RAM (WTF?) but this thread came up and YOU had the solution.

I have 2 IDE hard drives and 1 SATA DVD-drive, so far so good. I've used your JMicronATA (0.6), 4GB of RAM.

Cheers from Río Negro... you know... Argentina.


PS for english readers: GROSO means "great", "huge", "giant" and similars, in spanish.

Basically, the problem is when you have more than 3 gb of ram (some says 2.5 gb) and AppleVIAATA, JMicronATA, AppleNForceATA or AppleATIATA driver.



Great info!!! I've been having lock ups and KPs every time I leave the computer idol for a long period, like over night or going to work. Strangely, it seemed like the more I was doing the less likely this was. Since I don't use anything IDE in this computer, I just deleted JMicronATA.kext, which was the only one of these kexts i have. Up about 3 days now w/o a KP! Thanks!

AppleNForceATA seems to be working on my ASUS P5N32-E SLi. I upgraded from 2 to 6GB Ram and finally no more kernel panics. thanks

Hello!

I seem to be having the same issue, I have an nforce chipset (used aitkos s3 v2 install). I downloaded the AppleNForceATA kext provided here and its the same one that was provided in the install cd ? Although AppleNForceATA kext is placed in the 'Extensions' Folder, its placed in the hidden 'Extra'/'Extensions' Folder. Also, there is jmicronata.kext in the 'system'/libary/extension folder. Should that be there? Since I dont have that chipset?

Is there any chance to get more than 2gb AND dvd-drives running?

I have been having these issues, it took a while for me to realise that it was related to the ApplenForceATA kext.

I have a 780i chipset with 8gb of ram... it would be wonderful if i could use it all, i currently have version 1.04 of the kext and although I dont get kernel panics i get unrecoverable system freezes which do not give any useful information in the logs

I wonder what is the best kext to use in my case... though i figure they all suffer from the memory limit.

It is all explained in my nForce OS X Lion and OS X Snow Leopard guides, where you can also download both the AppleNForceATA.kext by slashack for 32bit booting and imk's derivative for 64bit booting of OS X Lion and OS X Mountain Lion.....these kexts overcome the 3GB RAM limit of MedEvil's original AppleNForceATA.kext..... :)
