HDD not detected in Disk Utility, AHCI enabled

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

 

 

I am facing a big problem. I managed to install Yosemite OS X 10.10.1 on my USB drive with TransMac. I want to have a dual boot with Windows 7 x64 SP1 and Yosemite. I already have Win7 installed. Ok. When I try to boot from USB it works, Darwin shows up DETECTING MY HDD... I select Yosemite Zone to boot, it boots, I choose the language, but the big problem comes now.

When I go to Disk Utility it doesn't detect my HDD... Only the USB stick and the DVD-RW. And I checked my BIOS setting and they are good :

 

AHCI - enabled

HPET? I don't have that

Executive Disable Bit - enabled

USB Legacy - enabled

VT technology - enabled

If UEFI available turn it off & Enable legacy Boot - I don't see that

 

My specs:

 

8GB RAM 1333mhz DDR3 dual channel

Nvidia GTX 560 SE

Intel core i3 2120

Gigabyte GA-H61MA-D3V

500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue KX HDD

 

 

Please note that I have a thing named Marvel ATA blah blah, and when I go to it, it has something named GSATA controller and it lists my HDD and says IDE, and i have the option to choose RAID and AHCI

 

 

Regards,

Rickets

    • @MYLX You should do it via BIOS & I'm glad you made it work
    • Check your BIOS Settings, Enable Executive disable bit in BIOS You have a latest processor (2017 released) you should try Sierra or High Sierra if possible   Sometimes this guide may work https://www.hackintosh.computer/37/yosemite-zone-amd-guide/
