250 GB HD is recognised as 128 GB!
I installed the Uphucks's 1.3 OSX 10.4.9.
Everything is fine, sound, LAN, USB, etc, except for the HD.
The problem is that the OSX recognises 128 GB from my HD, but it's 250 GB.
I've used the ICH8 and JMicron patches, but they didn't work.
My Partitions are:
1st - 100 GB - OSX (HFS+ Journaling)
2nd - 100 GB - Windows (NTFS)
3rd - 32 GB - Backup (FAT32)
OSX just shows the 1st partition completely, the 2nd is shown as 28GB and 55.1 GB available!
3rd partition isn't even listed. See the image below:
I've read people telling it's a bug in the generic ATA controller and that solution is add the device id in some kexts, but it's not so clear to me what kexts I have to edit, and what dev id I have to add.
How can I make Mac OS X recognise my HD correctly???
Help me, please!

its somthing in the bios related to the sata controller. I have a p5b deluxe and had the same problem until I changed the sata controller from IDE to AHCI.
1) Open up the AppleVIAATA file
2) add id 0x036e10de under the SATA controller section (not sure why, since it's a PATA drive but this worked)
<key>VIA SATA Controller</key>
3) Fix the permissions
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleVIAATA.kext
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleVIAATA.kext
diskutil repairpermissions /
4) Found this in another topic
Remove the file: /System/Library/Extensions/IOATAFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleGenericATA.kext (in some cases it says AppleGenericPCATA.kext)
5) type this in the terminal window:
kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions/
i had the same problem and it just fixed after this system works super fast as well :@)
