‼️ Internal hard disk not showing up in installation

15 July 2016 - 12:05 PM

Hi everybody.


I'm trying to install El Capitan on an Acer Aspire E5-573, but I'm stuck in installer, which is not showing up the internal hard disk.


I already installed the system with the hard drive connected into a USB case, but when I try to boot it without the USB Case, the boot get stucked at the "prohibited" logo (I think this is getting 'still waiting for root device').


I suspect that the main problem is the Intel9 Series SATA Controller, which is not being recognized by the El Capitan.


I already tried 3 types of kexts for activate the SATA controller, but no lucky at all.


The system specs:


Acer Aspire E5-573

Processor Intel Core i5 5200U

Integrated Graphics Intel HD 5500 (will fight with that {censored} later)

Intel 9 Series Chipset


Wireless Atheros AR9565 (will be replaced)

Ethernet Realtek RTL8168/8111

Audio Realtek ALC255


So I'm bumping my head into the wall through the last 5 days with no luck to get this machine up and working.


Any help will be welcome!
