    Default Slow Disk Access

    I have a Dell Optiplex 320 with Intel Core 2 Duo 1.83 GHz, 2 GB DDR2 533 RAM, 160GB SATA HD, 20GB PATA HD. The chipset is ATI RS400/RC400/RC410 with SB600.

    The PATA controller is ATI with Hardware ID of 438C and the SATA controller is ATI with Hardware ID of 4380. I have the JaS Intel/AMD install DVD and can install natively to the PATA. The drive access is miserably slow after installation and it cannot see the SATA at any point.

    I have searched here for different driver/kext things to try to enable UDMA for the PATA and have looked but not found any solution to the poor drive access or being able to see the SATA. Any help would be appreciated. If I can't get it to load on the SATA or speed up the access for the PATA I am probably going to dump this. The xBench score for the PATA were in the 1.x to 2.x range.

    Had a similar issue, though not with ATI SATA...
    Have u tried switching the IDE/SATA setings from IDE to AHCI in Bios? That could do the trick, if u have the propper kext, that is...

    What version Jas DVD do u have? That could also be it... look 4 the latest, maybe somebody already solved this.

    Look up in the supported hardware to see if ATI SATA is supported by any driver or if anybody has a workaround, did u try altering the kexts strings for DEV ID manually already?

    If all this is obvious 2 u already, sorry, if not, just trying to help.

    For the Dell, there are very few options in the BIOS and none to change anything with the drives. As far as the JaS DVD it is 10.4.8 AMD Intel with SSE2 SSE3. I haven't tried downloading a newer one yet, I don't have a membership at Demonoid and that is where most of the OSx86 DVDs originate. I will look though.

    Thanks for your help.

    I have tried putting the DEV ID in, but I am not sure which kext to put it in since there are so many and in has to go in different places... I am also not sure the format it should be in... Device ID first followed by DEV ID? or something like that...
