Hello everyone! I am trying to install El Capitan 10.11.4 on my laptop Asus X751LX using Clover. I managed to succesfully reach the install with no problems, but when I go to Disk Utility in order to prepare my HD, it simply isn't on the list. The only drive it sees is the usb I'm using as installer.

Here are my PCI devices:

184030d1459787926-disk-utility-cant-load

 

 

And this is what I see when I do "diskutil list" in terminal

184044d1459794659-disk-utility-cant-load

 

I attach my EFI folder with config.plist inside and other stuff. Any Ideas?

Hello, and welcome to InsanelyMac!  :)

 

You already have setted AHCI mode in your BIOS?

If you have used UEFI method, you boot your Pendrive as UEFI?

You have SATA Controller option in your BIOS?


What method have you followed for create the USB Installer?

Hmmm, that's strange...try again with this guide: Making a 10.10/10.11 USB Installer /w Clover (UEFI and Legacy) the correct way!

 

If in UEFI this issue persists, you can try the Legacy way.

Some BIOS have this option, and sometimes inside these option are selected in IDE mode instead SATA.

Give your hardware specs when necessary (asking for support) and any other time where it may be beneficial to have them listed.

 

We cant help you unless you post system specs

I suggest you, apart from the problem, to install in an external HD, and then to clone the partition using superduper or CCCloner.
