I've just installed Kalyway 10.5.2 on ASUS K8N Motherboard & AMD Athlon 64bit (with SSE2) CPU & ATI Radeon 9600 CPU and after applying forcedeth_0.2c_leopard.zip for the Ethernet controller and Radeon9600.zip for the Graphics, and removing AppleNForceATA to prevent the Kernel Panic caused by com.nvidia.driver.AppleNForceATA, everything works perfectly except just one thing:

Whatever I connect to USB, it's not detected. For instance if I connect a USB DVD Writer or a USB external SATA harddisk, they are never detected. The USB harddisks do not appear even on Disk Utility. If I connect a SATA disk directly to motherboard's SATA connection, it's still not detected.

The only devices working on USB are the mouse and the keyboard (of course) and the only working harddisk is the boot disk (of course, again) connected on MoBo SATA.

When I searched the forum, I came across a similar topic and it said to activate AppleHPET.kext. In my S/L/E folder AppleHPET.kext was deactivated (it was renamed as *_backup) I acitvated it by renaming it as AppleHPET.kext and let the cache rebuils by deleting /SL/Extensions.mkext. This has no effect on the USB connectivity problem.

So I need your help, how can I make USB work? Thanks.
