My bios settings were properly set and not installed via usb 3.0 because it wouldn't boot the bootloader for me from it. Also I modded the Sierra from the mac store on Mavericks and installed that and got it done in one go. Everything I have done from here has required multiple things that went wrong one way or another. Either it won't boot or it breaks on its own without anything done but a reboot and boot flags not working. Honestly, I think more buhs were created than removed. No offense to the people who worked on this but alot of these kinks do need to be wprked out. This isn't criticism, it is info for the devs.
installation doesn't detect my hard drive
I'm trying to install mac osx sierra zone on my asus n56 laptop, the installation boots fine and go through language selection but at the windows where i need to choose hard disk, my hard drive isn't detected, neither disk utility shows my hard drive.
my hard drive is a intell 160GB ssd which currently has linux ubuntu installed on it.
You cannot find it on that usb disk because it is not there. It is however on earlier versions like the Mavericks usb installer, which is what I used. I could not get Sierra to install properly so I made one from the Mac store version and found a custom kernel made for Sierra 10.12.4 that works on 10.12.5 so I'm running the latest Sierra right now.
