I am afraid that we can only patch the known 32GB and 64GB bugs. The 128GB limit is not a bug, it's a feature. :cry: Your cheapest solution is probably to buy a Maxtor or Promise controller card WITH ON-BOARD BIOS.
Tested patched BIOSes. Untested patched BIOSes.

This Bios shouold be recent enough to support more than 128GB .

Does your Bios detect the full capacity and it's Windows who does not see all ~150GB ?

I know apple_rom has some plans against this feature. Let's wait and see what happens.
