Question

I was trying to install osx 10.9.0 to my hackingtosh and when I go to disk utility it only show my usb. I've tryed to created a hfs+ partition with ubuntu but are the same results.

 

Edit 4/3/14: In my WD I've a data partition, a ubuntu partition (where osx will go) and I got a other data partition. I've try with two different hd and result is the same, and in one of them I installed the iAtkos ML (now is empty this hd)

PC components:
Motherboard -> Gigabyte: GA-B75M-DP3
CPU -> intel core i5-3350P @ 3.10 GHz x 4
Grafics -> Nvidia: GT610 x 1GB
Hard Drive ->1x 1TB WD Blue (WD10EZEX)
Ram -> 8GB Kingston Hyper Red
I'm wating for a solution soon!!!
Sorry for my spelling ;)

I managed to install it by using "Gparted live cd" to format my HDD to Fat32. Then on "niresh Mavericks" install i used "disk utility" to format the HDD to Journaled, after that i was able to choose my HDD to finish the instalation.

Hope it helps!!

I've tried what "The Mk" said and the results are the same. I managed to install mavericks on a usb and its full working (a little lagy because it isn't the best way to have a installed). I think that is something that makes to not recognize the hard drive. I know that is possible with this motherboard (GA-B75M-D3P) because here there are some succesfulf links with unibeast:

So I think that is probably that there are some boot flags missing.
