About This File

This modified AppleAHCIPort.kext makes it possible to Hackintosh laptops and desktops that are locked in RAID SATA mode. I've personally only tested it with the HP m6-1045dx laptop, which uses a classic locked BIOS and HM77 "Panther Point" chipset paired with the Ivy Bridge i5. Based on the nature of the kext, I would say this can work with other computers, just give it a go!

 

------------------------

Why do I need this kext?

 

If your SATA-connected hard drive isn't being detected by the OS X installer and you have no control over SATA mode in BIOS/EFI (ie, IDE, RAID, AHCI modes). Common with the latest (2012 at least and newer) HP laptops, probably the trend for many OEMs these days.

------------------------

 

 

Install via Kext Wizard, probably a good idea to rebuild cache/repair permissions (also via Kext Wizard) while you're at it!

 

 

Thanks to eep357 for making this file!

Well thanks for posting it, cause I don't remember what I did with the original! :)

 

BALDY_MAN, what you using is a bit different, this is actual kext with device id's changed to work with sata controller that can't be taken out of raid mode. Your using an updated injector which which keeps orig kext untouched and allows it to load on many additional controllers not otherwise supported, and fixes naming on others that would be "generic" otherwise, orange icon and DVD player fix. Sometimes injector doesn't play nice on initial installation, so needed to modify in kext here. The injector's device list has since been merged into the ErmaC's patch of "IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext into IOAHCIFamily.kext" and is also included in Pandora's Box, but I can upload the stand alone version if needed. :)

Is this not compatible with mavericks? I tried it on Mavericks and its giving me kernel panic related to AppleAHCIPort.kext.

Alas, it is not (I assume so, since it didn't work for you... I no longer have the m6-1045dx or any PC for hackintoshing).

 Thank you for confirming this for other people who visit this page.

any chance you could update the driver for mavericks? My friend has an HP w/ AHCI RAID and is dying to upgrade to mavericks but he is stuck!
