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

Solution : I had SATA controller set to IDE, changed it to AHCI and it detects everything.

    • Hi, 
      I finally decided to install macOS high sierra on my laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad 720S 15IKB.
      It has:   i5-7300HQ, Intel HM175
      12GB DDR4 RAM
      A Samsung 256GB NVMe Drive
      GTX 1050 Ti With Max-Q   The first try did not boot so i had to use some args to get it to boot. The first problem arises due to the fact that all available usb slots are usb 3.1. The installer did not recognise my keyboard and trackpad and i had to install some kexts to get them working. Well, after i intalled the kexts, It was stuck in a boot loop. I was fed up and it was late so i decided to download hackintosh zone from niresh. I would install it later. Well, when i run hackintosh zone it gets stuck at the apple logo after loading. I ran it in verbose mode and it gets stuck in the following   [Date] localhost com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] <Error>: Host-level exception raised: pid = 541, thread = 0xbf1f, exception type = 0xd, codes = { 0 }, states = { 0 }
      busy timeout[0], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[1], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[2], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'   Then the screen goes blank and it starts over. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
    • ASUS laptop X550D can run hackintosk ? help me ! please!!!   thanks alot
    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.
