hello, first and foremost i am glad to become a new member to this forum wish is the most useful forum about osx86 on the net, anyways, it's been weeks since i'm trying to install osx mountain lion on my vaio vpcz13z9e.

i looked very hard, trying to find a solution to enable AHCI mode on my ssds, in the bios (hybrid20 version R3031C3) in don't have any option stating that.

i used iAtkos ML2 to install osx but in the disk utility i couldn't find my ssds

i have a raid0 256GB please help me i really need it.

Do you have the option RAID? RAID usually implies AHCI...

sorry for the delay, and yes i have the RAID options, but it doesn't help, it's either create a new raid storage, delete, or switch to non raid, i tried all these options and none of them worked :s

You must either look for a modded BIOS or try to install using IDE (very hard, but not completely impossible).

Read iatkos ml2 readme and look for the RAID installation article.It should have everything you need.

I don't know about any mod for your board, so you either google for it or try to install OSX on IDE mode.

Reply to all two quizes, so you be able to post, thus ask help, anywhere on Insanelymac.

Best regards!

I think you can install it on IDE mode.Although you have to put patched IOATAFamily.kext in your extra folder of your installer.I suppose it works with IDE enhanced mode aswell.Give it a go.
