  1. can't find IDE HD on Disk Utility

    I'd manage to install to VIA sata controller (non bootable), since the IDE port is so stubborn. Now the problem is this non bootable device? How can I start the system if the IDE is the bootable one. Easy...put the OS into the box and unboxing to an IDE disk... Voila it works with a bunch of bug... I guess it does the the primitive BIOS a trick... Thanks fellas for the ktext, it help half a way... Cheers and see ya around
  2. can't find IDE HD on Disk Utility

    HARD DISK IDE KEXTS.zip 455.73KB 171 downloads (posted by moderator) it just help me out on reading hdd on installing 10.6x into HPXW6000 workstation...yet still the disk utility CANNOT unmount disk (whatever type/kind of port disk you attached to) I'd tried bunch of ktext and boot arguments,BIOS config, etc.... none of them works Maybe someone can give better idea on this unmount-ing problem on PATA disk drive, USB drive... or I'd just better rely on AHCI port
  3. I'm working on HP XW6000 PC-desktop, the APPle intel io ata or ApplePATA thingy and replacing the io ata ktext only makes dirves appear, wise I;m still stuck on UNMOUNTING disk-s the HP XW6000 still could NOT unmounting harddisk or it takes whole years to unmounts the drive it's the same old problem I assumed installing OSX 10.6xx TO> NON-SATA interface is IMPOSIBLE.... Probably someone find a way to install OSX to "NON PLUG and PLAY" mainboard....? UNMOUNTING means > pull out a device from your computer MOUNTING means > plug in a device to your computer for such primitive BIOS or NON-Plug and play BIOS = mounting and unmoungting is exactly IMPOSIBLE it's a HARDWARE phenom NOT a SOFTWARE even a bunch of patches could NOT evercome this BIOS limitation... Cheers and have a good day.
