Optimized For SSD- Inateck USB 3.0 HDD Case

11 September 2014 - 07:55 AM


i recently buy on Amazon the inatek Usb 3.0 HDD Case and i put inside my SSD Corsair Force GT 120GB 2.5".

This case is optimized for SSD and should give a very high speed rate on USb 3.0


The problem is that despite all expectations , i cannot properly boot OSX ML from it.


I have created two partition with OSX Lion and OSX Montain Lion and when SDD is connected directly to SATA port inside PC it works very well


( 430 Mb/write/read), but when i mount it in Inatek case, i am able to boot only OSx Lion .. ( Disk speed test MagicDesign gives 150/210Mb /Write/read)


It's very strange - i have installed USB 3.0 Kext (PXHCD.kext) on both partition and i use Chameleon 2.1 snv 1820  to boot .

On Usb 2.0 port is the same : doesn't boot OSX ML, only Lion.


it seems that there are some incompatibilities with USb 3.0 port.


My Hack is :

Gigabyte H67N-USB3-B3 Socket 1155 Intel H67 DDR3 SATA3 USB3 HDMI

CPU Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz

SSD Corsair Force GT 120GB 2.5"

HDD Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5"

RAM DDR3 G.Skill Sniper F3-10666CL9D-8GBSR 1333MHz 8GB

VGA Sapphire Ati AMD Radeon HD 6450

Intel HD3000 (on board)

Case Micro Techsolo TC-020 MicroATX / power 400W

Blu-ray Sony BD-5300S 12x BD/DVD/CD burner

Acer S241 HL 24" 5ms HDMI monitor



My try is to sustitute the case or find a workaroud
