IDE drives and SATA drives (Using AHCI) on Intel DG33FB Motherboard?

1 post in this topic

I have my OSX86 installed on a 250 gig SATA drive; on an intel DG33FB motherboard. It works really well in AHCI mode, but I want to also want to use a spare 500 gig IDE drive I have (For Time Machine, or for a copy of Windows XP). If I plug it into my computer, OSX still boots but does not see the drive. I'm not sure if switching adding a new kext will help or hurt the system, since right now it works with AHCI and I don't want to mess up my sata drive and my OSX install.


Is there any way I can use both my SATA drive and my IDE drive?
