SATA1 port broken

Hi!

 

I have Snow Leopard installed on my Intel PC. However, today I was replacing the hard drive and I broke SATA1 port. Now Snow Leopard can't boot. I remember that I couldn't install it until I put the HD on SATA1 port.

 

So... is any chance that I can run it (I think it's iDeneb) on another SATA port? Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Disable that port in bios and use the next lowest number available. Needing to use port 1 to install seems to be a much more rare occurrence these days though

 

Thanks for the reply. I can't find to disable SATA port on the bios (I have an Asus P6T Deluxe v2 motherboard), just to set manually in this port that doesn't have a HD connected (disable autodetection). I tried that connecting the HD to port 2 but does't work. Still displaying unable to find root device.

 

Another ideas? Thanks anyway!

I think your in the AHCI/Storage configuration section. Here's from Sabertooth, very similar:

depending on current chameleon settings, you can also try boot flag:

rd=uuid*

or

rd=hd(1,2)

changing the drive and partition # as needed

Yes, that is where I disable it, but still not working. I think that it's only disabling autodetection, not the port. I'll try the boot flag on chameleon, thanks.
