  1. Hi there, First of all I'm new to forum and hackintosh, so I am sorry i posted in wrong place. after 3 days I finally got to boot OSX Yosemite installer using clover with a USB, but now I face anther problem and that is it doesn’t detect my HDD (in disk utility it only shows my USB Flash). PS: hp bios doesn’t let you choose between BIOS SATA setup from IDE to AHCI. any help is much appreciated My notebook specs: HP ENVY dv6 Notebook PC CPU = Intel Core i7 3630QM Ivy Bridge Ram = 8GB HDD = 700GB Display Adapter =Intel® HD Graphics 4000 Graphic Card = 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M
  2. [solved since writing] For help to others. Installed AHCI_Extended_Injector.kext in S/L/E, repaired permissions and all works (with -f at present) with Dell 435 BIOS set to RAID. Did not remove any other kexts as there seemed to be no other AHCIInjccetors that ahd been installed. Now just have to work out how to change windows. --------------------------------- I have Dell 435MT (BIOS options are only ATA and RAID , which many says ==AHCI). I have a working dual boot system with Win7x64 and OSX 10.8.2 (performed with myHack awith 10.8 and then upgraded to 10.8.2) - there is no DSDT used.Having ordered a SSD I realise now I need to change to AHCI and need to get it working in OSX first before I change Windows (where I can change I believe with registry change). If I change the BIOS to RAID(Dell===AHCI) and boot with -f then the system hangs at [starting PCI Configuration] but there is no Kernal Panics. I had thought that as OSX was AHCI based the kext would be present and it would adapt with -f but I obviously need to make soem adjustment. preseumably myHack did not install these at the time. Do I need to do a reinstall something I would like to avoid? I have found two kexts (AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA and AHCI_3rdParty_SATA) do I need to add these to S/L/E to get it to work. I also found AHCI_Extended_Injector.kext which has been used successfully with a Dell 435 and the instructions say "Also included IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector in it, for all drives to show internal and DVD keyboard eject/DVD.app fix. RAID ID's are also included for all the AHCI/RAID switchable controllers I could find. Remove other AHCI or BlockStorage injectors and install to S/L/E" Is this kext what I should use and what are the other AHCI or BlockStorage Injectors I should remove? Thanks for any help anybody can give.
  3. Does anybody know if it possible to get work C602 chipset 4-Port SATA Storage Control Unit (8086:1D6B) Device on Yosemite? AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext (AHCI Device Injection) didn't work.
  4. Hey, first i want to say that i'm new, and not from USA so my english isnt good. I do everything right, buy Lion from app store, make the bootable pen drive, but my MB doesnt have AHCI mode, its a gigabyte G31M ESL2. What can i do ? Is because of my computer that USB doesnt load? Thnx

  6. Salve ragazzi, è da tempo che cerco di installare sto benedetto Hackintosh nel mio Hard Disk, ma proprio non riesco. Ho provato con Niresh ma al momento della scelta del Hard Disk, non mi riconosce il mio, solo uno esterno (infatti l' ho installato su Hard Disk Esterno) però ho la necessità di farlo partire su quello interno, purtroppo la mia scheda madre non supporta la modalità AHCI, infatti nel BIOS l'opzione "SATA Mode Select" è bloccato su "RAID Mode". Se sapete un modo per risolvere questo problema..
  7. So I've had this system running perfect on Lion for a while... AHCI accomplished by setting BIOS to RAID mode w/o configuring any drives for RAID. This works perfectly, with greatly improved speed over IDE, but now, when I attempt to install 10.9 by MyHack, the installer cannot find the HDD's. This is odd, because I can install fine by adding AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext... Do any of you geniuses have a idea what's going on?
  8. myHack doesn't validate my system volume and i can't proceed with OS X installation. The OS volume is currently running a UEFI Windows installation on GPT drive. BIOS has AHCI and UEFI boot enabled. I used myHack 3.3.1 and Mountain Lion InstallESD.dmg Thoughts???
  9. Hey when i go into my bios to change it to AHCI. Theres NO option to change it. Why cant i change it! I want hackintosh but i cant get it to work without AHCI Dell Inspiron 620 MT Desktop

    No Hard Drives

    I have started testing Mavericks DP1 and installed it on spare USB drive. Specs: Supermicro X8DAE Dual Xeon 5530 Nvidia GTX 570 24GB RAM From Mountain Lion installation I already know that this motherboard won't work properly W/O replacing AppleACPIPlatform and IOPCIFamily kexts (freezing etc.). So, I have installed as usual with -x, installation went smoothly, but when I replace those two kexts and reboot all my HDDs are missing. In verbose mode I see that com.apple.driver.AHCIPort has failed to load because of some error ..... I suppose that we'll need updated AppleACPIPlatform and IOPCIFamily kexts for Mavericks?
  11. Hi. I've been using snow leopard for the past 10 months on this machine, quite comfortably but with some software limitations of course, but yesterday my main hard drive died, so I'm taking this opportunity to install Mavericks on a new hard drive I will buy in the morning. but I'd like some guidance. I was planning on also buying a SATA controller card but I don't know if I'll be able to find one soon (I asked arround last time, no one had one) so I'm going to see if i can install it mavericks anyway. I've seen in other topics people saying install this kext install that kext but i don't understand how you'd install it when you cant even boot into the osx installer, or how does one go about making the installer boot with no AHCI. I downloaded the niresh distro and put it on an usb but every time i try to boot from it a spinning / appears and then my computer restarts. I suspected it was because I had usb legacy disabled on the bios because i needed it to boot to snow leopard but its not it. also verbose mode doesn't give me any feedback, the letters scroll too fast before restarting, it's a hard restart. is this distro the best way to install mavericks on my system? how can i make it work and if not can someone please help me with what kext to install and the preparation of the installer? I hope I can get some help soon because i'll go downtown in the morning to buy the hard drive and if possible the SATA III controller card and I really need to get this computer set up today or else Ill be behind on my work. I have a macbook running 10.8.5 where I can do stuff in with dmg files and stuff like that if necessary. I'm sorry for the newb questions and thanks in advanced. my system is: Mobo: Asrock N68C-S UCC 
CPU: Phenom II X4 940 BE
 RAM: 4gb ddr2 1066 
GFX: XFX Radeon HD 4850
  12. I found how to have your system's SATA controller information displayed correctly within the Serial-ATA section of the System Profiler / System Information pages. As long as you can obtain the Device ID and Vendor ID of what the system has, then it should be fairly simple. Procedure: 1) Use a program like lspci or System Info to list the devices. 2) Find all SATA storage devices, making sure each unique combination is recorded. 3) Proceed to copy AppleAHCIPort.kext to your favorite working directory from /System/Library/Extensions, as well as copying the original version to a location separate from this working directory. You may need to put the original back into /System/Library/Extensions if there is a problem later. 4) Once in the Finder, open the kext with Show Package Contents and navigate to the Contents directory, expanding it to open the internal Info.plist. 5) Once editing Info.plist with your favorite xml editor, navigate to the IOKitPersonalities section and add the necessary details for each SATA controller. Start by copying an existing entry that closely resembles the details for the added controller. I used one that already has the IOPCIPrimaryMatch sub-key. After that, proceed to modify the main key for the controller you are adding. For example, my system has both a Marvell 88SE9172 and AMD SB950. I made the sub-keys immediately below IOKitPersonalities my own invention, following the pattern of the already existing ones. For example, I entered: Marvell88SE9172AHCI AMDSB9x0AHCI 6) The Chipset Name sub-key is modified to something meaningful. The vendor name sub-key is pre-pended in the Memory section, so it may as well be absent in this value string. For example, mine are: 88SE9172 SATA AHCI Controller SB950 SATA AHCI Controller 7) Modify the IOPCIPrimaryMatch to match the Device ID and Vendor ID within your system. For example, mine are: 0x91721b4b 0x43911002 8) Finally, update the the Vendor Name to match the SATA Controller vendor within your system. For example, mine are: Marvell AMD 9) Save this working copy Info.plist to your working directory. 10) Copy this Info.plist into the AppleAHCIPort.kext | Contents directory within /System/Library/Extensions, replacing the Info.plist already there. 11) Answer the prompt for authenticating this replacement. 12) Use your favorite method to update the /System/Library/Extensions caches and permissions to be sure all is well. I use Kext Wizard, since I get tired of typing all of the commands within Terminal. 13) Reboot. 14) Inspect and confirm the new SATA controller details are now showing in the System Profiler / System Information | Hardware | Serial-ATA section. Note that no binary files are affected by this addition to the AppleAHCIPort.kext | Contents | Info.plist. Here is what the raw xml looks like inside Info.plist. The IOKitPersonalities and MCP79AHCI keys are shown for reference to assist understanding that the new controller entries have been placed alphabetically under the IOKitPersonalities key. The entries I made look like: AMD SB 950 SATA Controller Entry: <key>IOKitPersonalities</key> <dict> <key>AMDSB9x0AHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>SB950 SATA AHCI Controller</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAHCI</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x43911002</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>AMD</string> </dict> . . . . . . Marvell 88SE9172 SATA Controller Entry: <key>Marvell88SE9172AHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>88SE9172 SATA AHCI Controller</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAHCI</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x91721b4b</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>Marvell</string> </dict> <key>MCP79AHCI</key> <dict> . . . . . . I did this for both the retail Snow Leopard and Lion installations on my FX-8350 system.

    AppleAHCIPort.kext (for RAID)

    Version 1.0 (only version)


    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!
  14. Version 2.5.1 (12F45)


    Patched IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext into IOAHCIFamily.kext. Also include the Yellow icon fix. (No AppleACHIPort.kext patched file required). (Credits) List of the edited controller goes to eep357. Patches and edit by me (ErmaC) Replace this kext file with the original present in /System/Library/Extensions/ Rebuild system cache and repair disk permission. Enjoy! ErmaC
