Has anyone be able to get chameleon/chimera to boot off this card?

It is a Marvell 88SE9130 chipset and is ACHI compliant. It should not require any special drivers.

My system tries to start booting from it in HyperDuo mode but it seems the boot loader pukes and won't go any further.
I will have to post a follow up with some screen shots with a physical camera as it is hanging in right before OSX tries to boot.

I figured out why it won't work as a boot drive :(

Seems the "Virtual Drive" that it creates and presents to the system is a MBR drive.
So even though it is ACHI, it won't work in an OSX machine, at least not a hackintosh.

It was cheap, so it at least gives me 2 SATAIII ports on my EP45-UDP3 775 build running Yosemite!
