I have got 320gb....

 

I tried to resolve this problem in so diffrent ways: I give up.

 

-> tried to delete applegenericata...kext something like that -> still 128gb

-> used software SpeedTools did not work, Get error about IOATA bus is blocked bla bla

-> used http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=88335 -> still wait for root device

 

I also have got Sata but OS X cant recognize it 6300ESB south brige (based on ICH5?)

 

I have got SE7525GP2 motherboard. Kalyway 10.5.2. install.

Assuming that what you are saying is that you dont the get the whole 320 Gb capacity of the disk recognized but only 128 Gb...

...the problem is related to 48-bit LBA addressing, google about 128/137 Gb Hard Disk Barrier and read about the issue, essentially you need an ATA controller BIOS that supports drives larger than 128/137 Gb and a driver (kext) too, I assume current Apple kexts support that but I've never used an IDE drive so large.

Maybe the generic ATA kext doesnt support that after all, try finding out if your 6300ESB is included in ApplePIIXATA or try using AHCI mode if available, in any case you need to find out the controller's device id using lspci -nn command from PCI Utils.
