HDD Not detected in OS X Installer (10.8.5)


Hello, i am new to hackintoshing and i need help!

I would like to use Mountain lion but i have tried all the niresh distros. When i boot up the installer and open disk utility i get my disk drive and thats it... (I am using the ISO on DVD).

I have set SATA Controller to AHCI but that wont work...

I have tried to format the HDD to FAT32 and HFS + with GParted Live CD, same result...

i have tried pretty much everything i could find from googling the problem.

Please help!


My system specs are:

MOBO: Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2PV

CPU: Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz

Ram: 4gb

HDD: WD Blue 1TB

GFX Card: NVidia GeForce 9500 GT


Thanks for looking!
