Skitals , or anyone who knows. I have a Gateway using the G33 motherboard chipset ICH9 controller. But lspci under mandriva Live CD shows a different ID. My DvD Burner is connected to the IDE and obviously not working.
Here is what lspci -nn diplays:
Mass storage controller : Integrated Technology Express, Inc. ITE 8211F Single Channel UDMA 133 [1283:8211]
I am not sure if that is a Jmicron controller or not.
Anyhow which kext do I need to modify and what format is the id: 0x82111293? or 0x12838211?
Anyhow please which kext do I modify?
Hoping to get a reply soon?
here is the link to the specs of that PC:http://support.gatew...14737Rcl5.shtmlhttp://support.gatew...06194Rsp2.shtml
Intel (Schroeder Town) G33 Motherboard
Intel Bearlake-G33 GMCH Chipset, consisting of:
*Intel North Bridge (GMCH)
*Intel South Bridge (ICH9)
EDITED TODAY 5:15PM
Ok I edited the AppleVIAATA.kext/Contents/Info.plist
under the sata
under the <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>
I rebooted and Viola I now see the Optic DVD Serial-ATA DVD Burner in the Apple Logo More information Serial-ATA.
My HArd drive is still generic. I am using AHCI in BIOS.
Problem after putting in CD or DVD the system freezes.
What can I do to fix this? Do I need to edit a different kext since this is a G33 Intel Bearlake Motherboard?
I know I am real close to fxing this with some help?
Btw where were other device IDs in there which I kept then removed and made no difference. System freezes if I load a DVD or CD into it.

I have to working now thanks to this Linkhttp://forum.insanel...rt=#entry335069
But only on Jas 10.4.8 and I cannot get it to install correctly on Uphuck's 10.4.9 v1.3. It keeps rebooting after the darwin boot and immediately after the extensions are repairing then I get the endless reboot!!

FIxed the endless reboot. I had to rename the AppleIntelCPU*.kext. I thought this was only the case for SSE2 kernels but I guess since this is somewhere between a SSE2 and SSE3 processor I suppose. Although its a P4 family 530 and I ran CpuID and it had SSE, SSE2, SSE3. Its the 880MHZ bus and 1meg of L2 cache so that in of itself tells you it has to be SSE3.
Is it possible to install an osx86 on a similar PC and after the install swap the drive and boot to it? NEver booting to the one you installed it on? Reason is because I cannot install the osx86 on the other PC because of the SATA controler. I have to modify the kexts then I am able to boot on the other PC.
I know TIger is not 100% posix but it seemed to work. Leo is going to be 100% posix.
