Hey there!
 
I was trying to install Mavericks on my new pc, everything goes smooth until I'm in the installation, it does not show the hard drive I'm trying to install it to in Disk Utility. The only thing it is showing is the Installation USB.
 
I have tried several things:
1. Setting bios SATA controller to AHCI mode;
2. Using other SATA ports for the hard drive;
3. Using several kexts that I found online;
4. Pre-partitioning and formatting the drive before installation;
 
I'm getting quite desperate here, none of this seems to be working.
Does anyone have an idea what could be wrong?
 
My specs:
GIGABYTE Z77P-D3 rev1.1 mobo
Intel i7 3770k cpu
AMD Radeon 6850 2gb
WD Blue 1.0TB hard drive
 
Thank you so much in advance.

I already did parition it to GUID partition table and HFS+ using my old build.

I'll give it a try once more using the linux live cd.
