This is probably OT so its marked as such. I got a 966mhz PPC Mac at
home running Tiger and I have a file server with 2 SATA drives. I'm
curious if Leopard (and the PPC Mac) will boot from the SATA drive? As
a test, I put the SATA card in the Mac and Tiger didn't recognize it
or the drive. I want to know if Leopard patches the BIOS code (or
whatever Apple calls it) to allow booting from a SATA drive on older
