    [GUIDE] Chameleon 2 RAID - More complete tutorial

    Hi--first off, thank you, I've been working on trying to get my RAID off the ground for the past 8 hours and you're the only one with a guide that actually works! That said... So I can boot 10.6.3 (specs/install method below) with my RAID now, but with my 1gb Sparkle GeForce 9800gt reading as a 16mb generic gpu (of course with no goodies, and so lo res it's hard to even look at the screen) and my RAM, which is 1333mHz, is reading/performing at 667 mhz. Everything else, including the processor identifying as an i7, seems perfectly normal. I've tried moving kexts around, copying over various boot files, editing the boot.plist (but the string that used to work seems to do nothing, though I did FINALLY get it to recognize the -v instruction)... Any ideas? Oh, and every time I tried something I would go back to "pure"; i.e., destroy the RAID entirely, rebuild it, and reclone the source drive (which still boots fine, btw). Specs-- i7 860 2.8gHz quadcore GA-P55A-UD3 mobo Sparkle GeForce 9800 GT 1gb 4X4gb OCZ PC3 10666 DDR3 RAM 4X32gb OCZ Vertex Turbo ssds (currently gimpy striped RAID 500gb stable 10.6.3 install (clone source) Install method: [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] EDIT--just noticed that the source boots fine if it boots directly from BIOS; if it goes into the RAID's Chameleon, I have the same video and RAM problems...

    sil3132 driver

    Thank you so, so much for this; I've been trying to get my atom 330 to even recognize my PCI-e card for about 4 days now. It finally seems to with that driver, but like your RAID problem, only one drive per channel so my port multiplier is currently useless. But I do have a 2 channel isolated controller box, so I guess I'll use that for the time being until a usable workaround arrives (and allows me to return to 64-bit mode, but really for a file server that's not that important)...

    Add FirmTek PCI Sata Controller?

    As a note, I tried the Firmtek 32/64bit on my Atom 330 for a SI PCI-E 2 channel eSata card, and it caused kernel panics, couldn't even boot with the card installed. Removed the card and it booted fine; removed the kext and replaced the sil3132. Now the bootloader recogizes the card (gives me the option to boot from it with a linux drive) but once I boot into SL, nothing. Is there a workaround for this? Or perhaps a way to fix either kext? I'd have no problem doing the work if someone could point me in the right direction (need a port multiplier and my board is ICH7)...
