Im new on the mac front but i managed to install Snow leopard from a retail disk on to my IDE drive.
Everything is set up and works fine except that i cant see my SATA disks.

I enabled SATA-AHCI mode in bios and i can now see my disks but they are read only.
Im guessing i need some kind of kext for my SATA controller.

My MB is: Gigabyte EP35-DS3

Thanks for you time.
