installation doesn't detect my hard drive

Hi

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.

What are your bios settingsregarding your hdd's?

Probably choose sata mode to AHCI (on your bios)

the sata mode in my bios is set to AHCI

also I tried copying some kexts I found around the internet (that should help with detecting the sata disk drive) to the usb  EFI\Clover\Kext\other folder but still it doesn't detect my hard drive

 

any ideas what else could be wrong? should I format it in any particular way?

    • 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.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
