You can still use either vanilla or Dune's AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext

AHCI mode is not a requirement for installing OS X.

 

AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext drives PATA controllers or SATA controllers in non-native mode.

I did not understand you

give us details of your laptop regarding ich (controller).

 

Regarding AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext:

Vanilla = OS X original (not modified)

Dune = Patched

FYI, you dont need Orange ICon Fix for IDE mode. Simply because that fix is only for AHCI. And also, No need To change it to ESB2 by patching the DSDT nor using chameleon's module coz he is on IDE.

AHCI= better than IDE .. if he upgrades to SSD no TRIm with IDE mode.

also it runs faster in AHCI aka RAID mode.

He is asking for help re his mobo without AHCI and only IDE. Offer him help on how to get it to work instead of letting him replace or upgrade his mobo. Lol!

umm the lol is on you.. he has SATA HDD and ICH9 so it has AHCI disguised by dell bios as RAID.. this machine was made to be compatible with XP and VISTA no Service pack with missing AHCI ich 9 drivers back in 2006

 

 

he also has CMOS RESET due to Device (RTC) needs patch and AppleRTC in lion needs binary patch.. better use DSDT.

 

u done trollin yet ? :thumbsup_anim:

Exactly. RAID implies AHCI, so just leave it in RAID mode. ICH9R should work just fine but appear as "generic SATA controller".

 

A quick way to fix this (this is just a cosmetic fix) is to use the AHCIPortInjector.kext (google it) that used to come with Chameleon.

 

But the easiest way available is to use the SATA module that comes with Chameleon 2.2 (goes in /Extra/Modules), I have never used it but I believe it should take care of this and at the same time set the 'internal' property so drives get the proper icons.
