E-SATA on Asus P5WD2, Help please!

Hi guys, new to the forums here. Just need a little help.


I've successfully build a Hackintosh since 10.5.4, I've used majority of distros out there, such as kalyway, ideneb, iatkos etc.


I have recently updated my Hackintosh to SnowLeopard 10.6.2 HAZARD.


I have almost everything working, system runs beautiful except my FireWire and External SATA port, can't seem to get those working, I was hoping if someone could shed some light on this.


My system is:


Asus P5WD2 Premium motherboard.

Intel® Pentium® Processor Extreme Edition 840 (2M Cache, 3.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)

4 GB of RAM

Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB


Runining SnowLeopard 10.6.2


I have installed the AHCI and JMICRON drivers, but the Firewire and E-SATA just don't work.

In the System profiler Firewire says Maximum Speed up to 400MB but when I plug in a HDD through firewire nothing happens, same goes for e-sata when I plug it in nothing happens.


Can you guys please point me in the right direction as to what other drivers I need to intall or what can be done about this.


Thanks, in advance.
