quick intro, i had a working version of snow leopard or lion on my hackintosh, thanks to conti (awesome guy), working audio, working everything, my system was fairly old though (couple of years), i noticed with time the bootup started to take longer and longer, it got to the point where booting up my system took between 30mins and over an hour. now i felt it was time to update, and see if my system was good enough working with mavericks. since a direct update wasn't possible, i created a new installer, formatted and installed mavericks, thanks to herve (another hackintosh enthusiast), i got mavericks installed, and well, i guess working, no sound, no lan, couldn't get a wlan stick to work, every time i disconnected a usb stick it just froze, and 1 of my hard disks wasn't showing any contents.
a friend of mine was getting the asrock x79 extreme6, sounded like a great motherboard, and herve linked me to rampagedev's guides, which seemd so straight forward that i figured i'd go with that too, i mean an already existing dsdt file and everything working out the box, sounds awesome.
after putting together my new machine. i installed mavericks pretty swiftly, but i pretty much got the exact same problems. of course i only read the installer guide on the site and not the read me, which now confuses me a lot.
so now i'm stuck with a new system at the exact same position.
no audio, but let's jump to the part i'm figuring i'd fix first.
since installing mavericks, i didn't touch any of the drives. but 1 hard drive, shows no content for me, as if it were empty.
which is insane, because disk utility tells me the disk is to over 90% full (which i know it is/was), and has over 8,000 files on tere. but when i select that drive under finder it claims the drive is empty.
i tried looking at the drive's folder through "Go to" and terminal but no luck, no folders found.
does anybody have any ideas as to what could be helpful here?
thank you very much for your time.
