Im running 10.6.2 on a 945G Chipset ICH7. The motherboard has 2 SATA ports and 1 DVD drive connected by IDE. The It runs great even better than Leopard except for the fact that it wont boot with a second hard disk connected to the other SATA port; I get a panic.
Its been a few days just to get to this point, both SATA ports worked on an earlier install but they were displayed as removable and were orange as removable media should.
I've uploaded a screen, but I don't know where to go from here.
You have 2 options to fix that.
Note: No need to use the patched IOATAFamily from option # 1 if you will follow option # 2
