Hello

 

Look, if TRIM works to you, great :) if not, great too :)

 

The important is use im my opinion ATA mode.

Use whatever works, full stop. If that means ATA/IDE mode, so be it.

hi,

to PimentelX86 and Hervé

I got some experience to the ATA mode, I have the Dell XPS 410 old day, bougth it in 2007, I try to run OSX with it, got me first with iAtkos Lion, then took me awhile come to 10.8 Mountain lion, and finally Yosemite is up and running now, 

the Bios of this one, I downgrade it, and second thing I use the  AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext, I am not sure It was modified or not but Yosemite see drive and boot and run vanilla.

the OSX see it as ATA not the AHCI

I don't know about bios mod, so I leave it is  un-touch, and I think it is safer. 

when I make AppleLPC.kext to load by add the string to LPC device into the kext, the system see 4 drive total from port 0 to port 3 periodical.

thank you all.

Yes, you're probably using the patched/modified AppleIntelPIIXATA kext which does support older controllers in legacy PATA/IDE mode.

Hello

 

I don't undestand what you really want :rolleyes:

 

Do you want install OSX? Post-installation is adjust everything that you need to make OSX run direct from HDD, without need usb stick...

You need make this to have a hack running well.

 

Anyway, you're welcome.

I try to see how far the Dell XPS 410 hardware able to OSX, with a regular motherboard it carry the AHCI option to the Bios, so with motherboard have AHCI put OSX is not a big deal. With XPS -410 it carry ATA mode ( I just got it recently) so it it interesting to see how this go.
Mostly, I use this XPS for home file samba server with Opensuse on it, no problem, sometime I got time to test OSX on it. Because it is old hardware to run modern hackintosh.
Thank you for your info.
