  1. I actually did. I realized that my computer was super slow after buying an HPT SATA controller. I did some searching and came across this guide: http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?...entry2549 I grabbed a DSDT in Linux and fixed it up according to the guide, and then dropped it onto my Chameleon USB stick and the system sped up to full speed and AHCI worked like a charm.
  2. I am having difficulty getting the Snow Leopard installer to detect my hard drive in Disk Utility, attached to an Intel 631xESB/632xESB controller. I'm using Chameleon RC3 and booting into 32-bit. First I ran into the IOATAFamily KP issue, so I removed the IOATAFamily kext from /S/L/E and added this one (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=186609) to /E/E. Then I added this AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=181275&st=20&p=1246108entry1246108). I edited the info.plist to reflect lspci in linux, which shows that my SATA AHCI Controller is id 0x26818086, and my IDE controller is 0x269e8086. When I boot (args: arch=i386 -v -f -legacy) OS X reports that both my Primary AND Secondary PCI IDE Channels are disabled. Unfortunately I only have three options in BIOS, and changing between them doesn't have any effect. 1. AHCI / RAID if signed drive 2. ATA / RAID if signed drive 3. RAID The AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext isn't appearing in the system profiler. When I try to kextload AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext in Terminal, it says "dependency resolution failure; check the system/kernel logs for errors". I can't find any log info and don't have kextutil in that environment to check it out. I'm not sure why it isn't loading. My questions are: (1) are there other extensions that I should be looking for? Since the ESB is very close to a Mac Pro (2,2 I believe) is there some vanilla file in /S/L/E I can edit to put my correct PCI string in there? Do I need some sort of "Injector" KEXT (still don't quite understand what those do). Thanks very much for any help you guys might have.
