    Cant write to internal SATA HDD

    To close this off - in the end i managed to go back to the unpatched APPLEAHCIPort.kext and via vit9696 patch within clovers 'Kexts to Patch' i managed to get the disk recognized and by adding another small patch i was able to have the internal drives show as internal once more.

    Cant write to internal SATA HDD

    So more googling led me to the following post This is specific to me as i do have an Intel series 5 SATA controller on this board. What is confusing to me is that this is drive vendor specific as my Intel SSD and all other HDD's that i could test this on worked fine _except_ my WD drives which are my large data drives so for me something specifically related to these drives on this controller. By using the patched AppleAHCIPort.kext i managed to get the machine to recognise these drives and i can use them. I now have a slightly odd issue in that my internal drives show up as external removable drives, which of course they are not, so i need to now work on that. I find it odd that this issue appears so specific to WD drives - i would also like to try and patch this on the fly via clover rather than rolling back a kext.
  3. I have 10.14.1 installed onto a internal 800GB SSD and this runs fine - i have a data drive thats an internal 2TB SATA HDD and its formatted as Mac OS Extended Journalled. The issue is that although the OS 'sees' the drive it cant read it and actually says its unreadable and so needs to be 'initialized'. If i connect this drive to a USB header it can be read and seen without issue. The board is a GA-P55M-UD2 and the bios is set as per many guides on the internet, and it installs and runs an SSD without issue. Am i missing something kext wise related to an internal SATA HDD even though an APFS SSD runs fine? - bit stuck and lost frankly. Couple of screen shots to help explain my issue.
  4. The GT 710 is a 'cheap' card that works well in 10.14
  5. Hi - not really sure what i set to be honest - i seem to remember its just default bios settings with AHCI enabled. Re the clover installer i simply create my install USB with createinstallmedia and then install clover onto that. I dont check install into ESP so the EFI partition is part of the main disk. Apart from that its just standard kexts in the installer. What issues are you having?
  6. success - swapped out the patched com.apple.telemetry.plugin and its booted!
  7. Thanks for the tip - is there anyway to do this in config.plist and leave the com.apple.telemetry.plugin untouched as i note this in that example config.plist <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Fix Core 2 Due CPU</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> KAcAAIU= </data> <key>InfoPlistPatch</key> <false/> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.14,10.14.x</string> <key>Name</key> <string>com.apple.telemetry</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> yAYAAIU= </data> </dict> If not i presume i can just replace my current com.apple.telemetry.plugin with the patched one linked to in that other thread? thanks
  8. I have this old board running a media server that has run 10.13 and everything previously without issue. I installed the latest clover and did an in place upgrade and everything seemed to go fine. On first reboot after install it panicked and rebooted and i could not see the error. I selected dont reboot after panic in clover and managed to get the following screen shot out of a video as the error scrolls past too quickly. I installed a clean 10.13 onto a different disk and this was succesful and so with the same clover and kexts i installed a clean 10.14 and exactly the same error occured. I have 2 other machines on 10.14 without issue so can anyone help out understanding the cause of this panic? The install of 10.14 runs fine its just on first boot after install that the machine panics and reboots. thanks for any help!
  9. I found this thread while searching for a problem with my Gigabyte p55 LGA motherboard and Mojave. This board has run fine up until this point with HS 10.13 and everything before hand. I upgraded to Mojave and the installer ran fine, on reboot however after some time of seemingly booting OK the machine just rebooted. Booting into verbose mode from clover its hard to see where it actually reboots as it scrolls past too quickly and then just reboots. Are there any tips that may indicate why 10.13 is fine but 10.14 seemingly installs fine but then reboots on boot?
  10. Thought I'd give it a go and with latest clover it worked perfectly! App Store update to latest beta so there is life in this old machine yet!

    i posted how to fix this previously - make sure your user is in sudoers, you might need to boot recovery partition and then add your user to sudoers manually then when in 10.13 just ... sudo dscl . -create /Groups/admin GroupMembership <youruser>

    I didn't need to fix it - it just works. Mine is an iMac 14,2

    Yes - appears to be working for me. What issue are you having?
  14. Why dont you just buy a 710? Its native OOTB in 10.12 and 10.13 and they are a cheap card.
