Hi everyone, I (sorta) got the Mac Installation working, but new problem. I see no option for RAID or AHCI in BIOS, and Mac doesn't show my 80GB or my 500GB drives... Can someone help me?

 

I still need to run the server software on a Mac when nobody around here has a Mac...

 

Edit: I tried putting my 80GB in a harddrive reader, and it installed fine, but won't boot...

Hello.

You try that ML bootable than i send to you?

Boot with -v and post a image.

It's only way to help you.

I am not using ML, but SL. I used "-x -v -f GraphicsEnabler = yes" to boot into setup, but from there, I can't see any options for my internal harddrives. I can install to the usb HD, but Chameleon does not show the USB drive, or throws "/mach_kernel not found".

I have no idea what IDE controller I am using, nor where to get the controller...

Oh ok, I thought it would be easier for you to speak your own language, but I do speak English, I could use Google Translate...

The mach_kernel error was when trying to use a Chameleon Boot flash drive and a 80GB HD in a USB hard drive adapter, it's fixed by installing Chameleon to the drive itself.
