    Default 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!


    My PC:
    CPU: Core 2 Duo E6420 2,13 GHz 4MB Cache
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
    BIOS Version: F12
    Memory: 2 GB DDR2 Kingston 667 MHz
    Hard Disk: Seagate ST3250820AS Sata II
    DVD Drive: Samsung (TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S182F)
    VGA: XFX GeForce 6200 128MB Turbocache




    Thanks!

    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.

    Default

    1) Open up the AppleVIAATA file
    sudo -s
    pico /System/Library/Extensions/AppleVIAATA.kext/Contents/Info.plist

    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>
    <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>
    <string>0x036e10de</string>

    3) Fix the permissions
    chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleVIAATA.kext
    chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleVIAATA.kext
    diskutil repairpermissions /
    rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache
    rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

    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 :@)
