Hey everybody. I'm having an issue with getting my laptop to run OSX. I have an HP Pavilion G6-1d60us, which has an "AMD SATA Controller." For some reason, no kext that I have tried will allow the hard drive to be seen. I continually get Still Waiting for Root Device when trying to boot the installer from the DVD, and I can only boot OSX if I boot from a USB hard drive. I tried adding things like the IOATAFamily kext, AppleATIATA kext, etc., but none of them allowed me to see the hard drive.

Does anyone know of which kext will fix this issue? Thanks!
