    ‼️ Internal hard disk not showing up in installation

    Hi Herve, there's no option for that in my BIOS ({censored} locked Acer BIOS). AIDA64 reports the controller is working in AHCI mode, so I assume the setting is right in BIOS, or I'm wrong? Modern Laptops comes from stock with AHCI setted, until I know.
  2. 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 12GB RAM 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! Thx.
