stuck at partitioning - Hackintosh Mavericks - Hackintosh Zone stuck at partitioning Jump to content

Recommended Posts

Hi there!


I am a newbie regarding Hackintosh, so my question may be dumb but I cant solve it.


I have a HP Pavilion G6 2240sh laptop which is Hackintosh-compatible. I made a bootable usb stick with Win32DiskImager. I can boot from that without any problem, the install wizard starts up, but it stucked at the partitioning.


I have a hard drive with MBR, it's splitted to 3 parts (1 for windows, 1 for hackintosh and 1 for data). Windows have been already installed.


When I sould have to choose the partition where I want to install Mavericks, i dont see my hard drive in the list. When i open the disk utility, i can see it, but no modifications cant be made because i contantly get error messages without specs (Partition cant be mounted, cant be deleted and so on). I have already tried to make an empty "partition", in that case i could make a partition but the process is stucked at prepairing phase and after some minutes its freeze.


How could i solve this? Maybe I should reformat my whole hard drive?


Thanks for you answers in advance!


Best Regards

Well, I think the problem is not the bios settings. I checked it but i didnt find sata configuration menu in my BIOS. I google'd it and found out these:


Regarding these my SATA have been already set to AHCI. Now i try to install the latest sata ahci controllers and stuffs which may help me. I will keep you updated if I get anything positive :D

Finally I got enough time to figure out what the problem is. :)


I updated my bios and firmware of my ahci controller and now everything is working fine. o/


Customization: uncheck GraphicEnabler, check the IGPEnabler and move Intel kexts. After installation, hackintosh booted without any problem, in addition windows, too. I didnt even have to use any magic in boot files. For Pavilion G6 2240sh, everything seems to be working, except the wifi card (Ralink RT3290), as i know i should have to replace that with a new card.


Thanks for the help and, of course, thanks for the firmware :D
