Have you gone into disk utility and formatted the drive?

You forgot to set your BIOS SATA setup from IDE to AHCI

Thanks Chris1111.

 

I found this post after 5 or 6 hours of fiddling with boot flags etc. In the MacOS installer, I was getting "waiting for root device" or the install would "see no drives" to install the OS onto. Same with DiskUtility.

 

After reading this post, I put IOPCIFamily.kext, IOAHCIFamily.kext and AppleAHCIPort.kext from S/L/E on my 10.8.5 OS in a folder. I used KextWizard and dragged the three kext and install them on the MacOS installation drive. Used KextWizard for maintenance of S/L/E (rebuild caches, set permissions etc) on the installation drive.

 

10.9 is installing now. Yeah.. On to the next hurdle!

I have the exact same PC and was having the same issue on my Dell. Turns out the only kext that needs replacing from ML is IOPCIFamily.kext. I wonder what changed?

I'm having a heck of a time getting mine to work. I'm running BIOS version A19, BIOS is set to RAID/AHCI. Normally I have a Radeon HD 6450 in the system but I've removed that for now. I remember getting it to boot to the installer once but it had no drives and it was before I found your post. Now I have no idea how I got that far.

 

- If I use ##### to make the installer, I can get it to hang after initializing ethernet. Using the extensions from 10.8.5, installed using kext wizard, didn't help at all. 

- If I use myHack, it just kernel panics almost immediately even with -v -x -f 

 

Suggestions or pointers?? Thanks!

 I used UB 3.0.0 and yes Mac0S 10.8+ will not work with the Dell 755 motherboard GPU (from my experience). Continue using the same GPU that you used with your 10.8.5 setup.
