OSx86 on Acer Aspire 5100-5674

Ok, here's the system specs:

- Acer Aspire 5100-5674 Laptop

- AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK-53 (1.73ghz)

- 2GB DDR2 SODIMM (2x 1GB)

- RS480 Host Bridge

- ATI Radeon Xpress 1100

- ATI 4379 SATA Controller

- Seagate ST9160821AS 160GB SATA Hard Disk



Ok, I can get to the install screen fine, but the disk utility does not detect the SATA controller/drive. I have tried JAS 10.4.9 / 10.4.10 with no luck. Has anyone found a solution to this. There are like 30 threads with similiar issues but with sporadic solutions and results, I am looking for a definative answer, has ANYONE gotten this to work, or, had a similair problem and found a workable solution I can try?

Sorry bud,

No support for the ATI chipsets for SATA as of yet! I had the same scenario with my Acer Aspire 5050 - As soon as I put the drive in a SATA-->USB sled (external enclosure) she booted just fine!! (currently running leopard). There's a few people waiting for some ATI support, but we'll see if it arrives. Graphics support is also iffy, but my wifi works, ethernet, sound, everything else! For now, just grab an enclosure and "play" :(


have fun!
