Mac OSx86 on SATA?

Hi everyone


Can anyone help me install OSx86 on a SATA drive...?


I have just downloaded the JaS 10.4.8 image (Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2].iso) and burned to DVD. It loads up OK, but the disk utility will not recognise either of my hard drives (SATA)


My PC is:


ASRock (939NF4G-SATA2) Socket 939 nVidia GeForce 6100 Chipset

AMD (Venice) Athlon 64Bit 3200+

Maxtor 6L080M0 DiamondMax 10 80GB 7200RPM SATA/150 8MB Cache

Maxtor 6L250S0 DiamondMax 10 250GB 7200RPM SATA/150 8MB Cache


Club3D nVidia GeForce 6600 PCI-e graphics


My question is this:

Is ther any chance of insalling OSx on my current setup, or would I have to go out and buy a standard IDE hard drive to install it on?

Also, can anyone spot any other potential hardware problems? I'm kinda new to this!


Cheers guys
