ASUS P5E WS Pro + Highpoint Rocketraid 2224 PCI-X on 10.5.4 ?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Insanepeople,

 

I have recently build my own Hackintosh. I use a ASUS P5E WS Pro Board with a Highpoint Rocketraid 2224 PCI-X Controller. I installed the OS X drivers from Highpoint (http://www.hptmac.com/US/product.php?_index=22&viewtype=download) for my Raidcontroller, but unfortunately it didnt work. Because Leopard doesnt recognize my PCI-X Slots of my Mainboard. So I am stuck here. I have attached a snapshot of what DPCIManager is saying. So if anybody can help me a little , that would be very nice. If I try to reach my Raidcontroller via a webgui, then safari is giving me the message "Safari can’t open the page “https://localhost:7402/” because it can’t find the server “localhost”.". So I guess the driver isnt loaded at all. I attached the driver too. I know that this Raidcontroller works under OS X, because it was in my "real" G5 before. I know that there are no official Intel-Macs with PCI-X Slots, so maybe I must patch some kext wich normally goes to a PPC Architecture.

 

So I will wait hopefully for any response. Plz help me, this would be so great, because I use FinalCut a lot and I want to be able to cut uncompressed HDTV, wich require a Datarate of 280mb/sec. Wich I cant achieve with the built in Sataports of the Mainboard.

PS: Beside of this, everything works fine under 10.5.4 (except 5.1 Sound)
