Hi guys. Sorry for double posting this, but I think and hope I might have better chances in getting this solved here, than in the new suers lounge.
I wanted to install OS X on my computer, the specs are:

nVidia GTS 250
Intel Q9300
4 GB ram
ASUS P5K SE/EPU motherboard
A SATA harddrive at 250 gb.

I then found an old PATA drive on 40 gb, which I thoguht I would use, so I didnt have to format my SATA drive and make a partition. I got it setup, formatted and everything. I can see both the SATA and PATA harddrive in windows 8, but when I boot up my Snow Leopard USB it can only see my SATA drive.

I have tried this marvell controller http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=1412, but I can't see any of my hdd's when I am using that.

Hi and thanks for your comment.

I read the thread, and I have tried and copy the AppleIntelPIIATA kext to the extra/extensions folder on my install USB, but I can't see my harddisk. I removed that kext, and tried with the ATAPortInjector kext, but just as the Apple comes when booting the USB, it fades vlack, and tells me to restart my PC.

My PATA hd is connected all alone in the end of the cable, to the south bridge.
