I’m desperate. I need my Windows gaming fix on my mac pro and I’ve tried everything to get it to work alongside my 4 drive internal software RAID. The fact of the matter is Windows will not install on an extra drive plugged into one of the Mac Pro’s ODD SATA (motherboard) ports. In fact, no legacy OS will work on those two motherboard ports. This is because the Apple firmware, when booting a legacy OS, set's the SATA controller to IDE mode (which makes only the first four SATA ports available). AHCI mode, which is what I need, sets the controller to use all six ports. I will pay $100 to whoever is able to accomplish either of the following: 1) Create a GRUB boot CD that runs on the 2008 Mac Pro. This boot CD will do the following:a. Make it so when the Mac Pro boots in Legacy boot mode that the SATA controller is set to in AHCI mode (with all six ports active) instead of Legacy IDE mode (with only four ports active) b. Has a boot entry for a CD-ROM (I’ll use this to start the Windows install CD) c. Has a boot entry for Windows XP running on the 1st ODD SATA port d. Has a boot entry for Windows XP running on the 2nd ODD SATA port2) Patch the Apple CSM, using rEFIt’s LoadImage and StartImage calls to set the controller in AHCI mode (with all six ports active) instead of Legacy IDE mode (with only four ports active) when the computer boots a legacy OS (like Linux or Windows) Number one is definitely possible according to this URL (be sure to read all three pages): http://forum.onmac.net/showthread.php?t=2739. Number two is possible in theory according to the same URL. Here’s the nitty gritty: if you are successful with either of these and I believe you, I will PayPal you $20 to get the ISO and/or code from you. After I verify and get it working I will PayPal you the remaining $80. First come, first served. The first verified successful ISO or code will get the $100. With your permission, I will also make the ISO/code available to everyone on Mac Rumors and Apple Discussion boards, so the community has access to this. My bribe is only because I’ve spent way too much time trying to get this to work and failed. I’m just not experienced enough with Grub, Linux and EFI. Anyone else want this and willing to contribute to the pot?
