    it isn't a kext issue if you get this it normally means that your system is not compatible. Please read up on the Common Question / Issues Thread.

    why don't you try it?
    should'nt take long.
    FWIW, put them on separate channel ... both master is best (btw, it wouldn't solve your prob.)

    I havent tried because I dont know how. One other thing... if it gives me the waiting for device error before it is even installed can I install it on another computer and put it back on mine and then actually pass the device error because it will be installed?

    OK. here's the deal.
    What distro are you using?
    Consider iAtkos, IPC, Ideneb, Lawless

    If you do not understand master/slave in IDE drives then I don't think this is right for you. With that said, I always encourage people to experiment/play. You can google "how to set IDE master slave" and I am sure you will get tons of hits.

    Lastly, you cannot install on another computer and then move it to yours. OSX86 is hardware dependent.
