Hello everyone,

So I am trying to install OS X on my PC and I can not seem to enable AHCI mode successfully. After I enable AHCI my hard drive is not detected. I can not even access BIOS until I unplug my hard drive, then I have to change back to IDE mode in order to make drive detectable again. Tried changing Sata port on the motherboard and reflashing the bios, no luck. I had hackintosh installed on this system a year ago and it worked just fine, cant seem to figure out whats wrong now. Btw it has no problem auto-detecting a sata dvd drive.

I have Asus P5Q SE and Western Digital 500 GB hard drive

Any help will be appreciated
