SSD is not being recognized?
0

Question

Hello,I'm trying to install Niresh's OS X Mavericks build on my PC, however running into issues. I'm using a USB to boot the installer. I can boot to the installation screen fine, can open terminal, everything works. However, my issue is that my SSD that I want to use is not being picked up in Disk Utility, only the USB and the base system is picked up. I've tried booting a Ubuntu live CD, running a secure erase on the SSD to wipe all past data and then create a partition table in "mac" format within gparted then creating a partition as /dev/sda2 labeled "Macintosh". But, no sign of that SSD in the Disk Utility of the installer.My hardware;AMD FX-8150M5A99X Evo motherboard16GB RAMRadeon HD 6950SSD is an Intel 520 Series 120gbBooting with flags: amdfx -vIf somebody could assist me in getting this running, that would be great!

You need to identify your chipset and possibly use a patched IOATA kext that will support it.

Any idea how I can go about doing that?Total noob to the Hackintosh stuff.

But is the ssd reconize in the bios ?

Bios can recognize it, Ubuntu Live CD can recognize it. Just OS X installer is having issues recognizing it. My SATA ports are all AHCI enabled.Any idea?

That picture is just the bootloader initial screen. It does not necessarily mean OS X will then see your SSD.

I'm aware of that. Currently downloading 10.8.5 to test if that'll recognize the SSD.
