I want to install OSX86 10.4.8 (Jas Intel/AMD SSE2 PPF1 & PPF2 etc...) on my PC :


CPU : AMD Sempron 3000+ 1.8Ghz (Avec SSE2)

GPU : ATI XPRESS 200 Integrated (128MB PCIE)

MB : MSI Orion MS-7168 (µATX)

ETH : Realtek RTL8100C(L) 10/100 Mbps

Audio : AC'97 (Realtek ALC655)

Firewire : VIA VT6307 100/200/400 Mbps

SATA Controller : ATI 4379/437A Serial ATA Controller


DVDROM : Lect/Graveur DVD+R9 Phillips (Primairy Master)

DVDROM2 : idem + lightscribe (Primary Slave)

HDD : Seagate Barracuda 7200,8 , 200GB (SATA) (Third Master)

20Gio FAT32 Empty | 10Gio linux (/) | ~160Gio linux (/home/) | 1Gio linux (swap)

Bootloader Grub


... but on Disk Utility, my HDD doesn't appear ! Just the DVD Drive where is the install DVD !

I've tested many many things, and i've found the problem :


There are just the drives of the Primary IDE Channel who are detected ! (Primary Master & Primary Slave).


In the BIOS, i can configure my SATA HDD to be recognized as IDE drive (Third Master) or as RAID.

With RAID option, it's the same situation (not recognized)...


Are there solutions to this problem ?
