Hi Henser, PCI CONFIGURATION BEGIN? A new thread for this very common problem around? I can't believe it.

Well my friend, you must to know there exist from 10.6.8 (including 10.7) a new Chameleon 2.1 flag (npci=0x2000), and/or via DSDT fix (very easy way) to solve it. Please try reading from HERE. Just for record, by following any installation methods you want, it can put your /Extra/dsdt.aml file to the bootcd or USB pendrive. Good luck.

Please tell me, have you tried to install Snow Leopard with that "Motherboard" from Retail 10.6.3 DVD? What about that?

Anyway, in these thread seems to have it the answer it can works in Lion with that chipset ICH7 that you have, a very interesting way by using the PATA-ICH injector. Nothing to do for AHCI mode support. Good Luck.

PLEASE READ the Asrock section, yes its possible. Have you updated your BIOS? The guys running this board with SL had to do that.
