    Default My BIOS doesnt have AHCI

    I posted this in the Leopard section but it also applies to Snow Leopard

    I have a Compaq Presario SR5129UK which I've added a NVIDIA 9500GT 1GB graphics card into in aims of installing either Leopard or Snow Leopard onto, but I have a bit of a problem...

    When i go into my BIOS I have no option to change to AHCI mode, which I believe is needed to run Leopard or SL?

    I've tried to install iDeneb and iAtkos onto my system but neither will load, I get a "stop sign" on the grey screen after a few minutes, I've also tried to install both via Virtualbox but neither work (iDeneb installs but after i unmount the CD to restart after installation, it goes to a blank grey screen and hangs)

    What are my options? here are my computers specs (screenshots taken from CPU-Z):

    Compaq Presario SR5129UK
    CPU
    Caches
    Mainboard
    Memory
    Graphics

    massive thanks to anyone who can help me!

    I am trying to get a DELL Vostro 200 up and running. Same problem. No BIOS setting possible for AHCI - and I get the same visual results. Also tried Cameleon/iBoot.

    Found my solution for the DELL Vostro machines. They were called Inspiron before, so using the Inspiron 530 boot iso, it got my Vostro 200 up booting without AHCI in the BIOS. YES!

    ModBIOS experts published modded BIOS for the Vostro 200 that enables AHCI mode in the BIOS. Installing MacOS X is Ok then (tried it!).

    Default ACHI Not needed to install and boot

    Hey, i actually discovered that ACHI is not needed to install mac osx or boot into it after installation. this is what i did:

    Mount iAktos v7.

    Boot from disk.

    Press F8 for more boot options.

    Type in boot options: cpus=1 Platform=ACHI -x -f -v

    Install it.

    Reboot and wait 10-15mins for it to boot first time.

    HINTS:

    If it doesn't boot, keep trying, after 5 tries(10mins * 5 = 50 mins), try to boot with boot option -v. If it freezes for 10 mins, then see if it says Kernal error: <Panic>. If it does try with another destro and follow the steps above.
