Is there any benefit to installing this driver on an nforce4 system? Also can someone more clearly explain what this driver does?
Thanks

I made this driver for ATI / NVIDIA P ATA controlers (not SATA) with support of UDMA 6.
Z
supported controler:
- NVidia nForceX, MCP51, CK8S
- ATI SBXXX series

I you ever make a new DVD patch, would it be possible to include this in the essentials.pkg and extensions.mkext so that it can be installed natively on ATI chipsets?

Hey great!

D'ya think it's possible to make a sis chipset work with UDMA with your driver, too?
I modified in the past the serverworks driver to include my device id with no luck.

I'm not really sure what you did here instead... Could you give a brief explanation, and/or upload your modified source code?

Let us know if you think it's possible to make the sis chipset work!

thks!

Thanks for all your effort. I hope we can find a way to patch the 10.4.4/5 install so that x200 owners can boot natively. Has there already been one released? I haven't had any luck with vmware. Or maybe we should just wait until the SB400 sound is also solved so we get a fully functioning install. That would be perfect!

Does anyone compared this driver to the original AppleOnboardPCATA in XBench for nForce 4 ?
