    AppleAHCIPort.kext (for RAID)

    Version 1.0 (only version)

    2,418 downloads

    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!
  2. hello, my HD can't be recognized in the OS installation, when trying hacintosh my antique PC, but it works ok in MS Win10. After a few weeks' research, it looks that the OS X only support ACHI mode SATA? with detailed check, I figured out that the MB doesn't have an ACHI option for SATA at all, only IDE in there. my PC settings are listed, 1. CPU: intel Xeon 3210 (lga775) 2. MB: P35AX (with ICH9, phoenix bios, v1.2) 3. HD: wd 1TB 7200rps, Sata Then i found there is "ACHI/IDE" kexts(below) which seems to be able to fix this, AppleIntelPIIXATA ATAPortInjector however, it still doesn't work, the HD is not there in os installation with the kexts injected. Does anyone could help? ATAPortInjector.kext.zip AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext.zip
  3. Hello, after installing new hard drive to my functional hackintosh it doesn't shows up in disk utility at all. But, when I boot up Windows 8 on same machine and go to disk management it shows up normally and I can format it and do everything with it normally. Access with file explorer is also possible. I tried formatting it in MBR and GPT format style - no success. I tried formatting it in NTFS and exFAT - no success. I also tried connecting it to another SATA port - no success. Is there something else I can try?
  4. Today computer suddenly suffered from spinning ball when web browsing, had few apps in the background but nothing heavy on CPU. I waited 5 minutes and had to reboot by pressing off button for longer. After reboot I was greeted with a question mark folder sign instead of apple logo. Googled the problem and followed apple instructions - boot to recovery mode but computer can't see the SSD. I unplugged and connected the SSD via USB adapter. It booted straight away but obviously slow as f.... I don't have other 2.5" drive to try but I had that DVD drive to SSD adapter so I proceeded and to my surprise Hard Drive works in SuperDrive place just not in it's own. Can anybody tell me if MacBook Pro have one drive controller? If so it must be a ribbon cable or port malfunction, but how can it be? Thanks for any inputs. L79
  5. Hi everyone! this is my first post on the insanelymac forum! I'm trying to get mavericks running in virtualbox on a lubuntu host. My machine is an intel core i3 laptop with 4gb ram (3.6 usable) and so it struggles a bit. The problem is that even with 2984mb of ram given to the VM (bearing in mind lubuntu only needs a few hundred MB ram to run) it has periods of about 5 minutes where OS X will be unusably slow and even the mouse will only move in small jumps every 2 seconds. Then it will return to normal for 5 minutes and then it will go back to dead slow. This even happens when it's just on the desktop, doing little else. I'm considering adding more ram to make it 8gb to try and fix this problem, however, my other option is to take the HDD (80gb 5400rpm sata) from my old laptop and attach it via a usb 3 port to my i3 laptop. Then install a proper hackintosh on there (keeping my 4gb ram) instead of running a virtual machine with 8gb. (Btw. don't want to install OS X on my i3 laptop's hard drive because it's not actually mine and I don't want to mess it up). So which option would you recommend? I could do both but I'd rather just do one. Thank you!
  6. I just purchased a refurbished 27" iMac (September 2013. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough money to buy one with a SSD or Fusion drive, and I am stuck with a 1TB internal drive at 7200rpm. Originally, I was just going to purchase an external SSD and boot from it, but I have decided that I would rather use a hybrid/fusion drive. Will a hybrid drive even work properly in an enclosure? If not, any recommendations on a cheaper external SSD? I was hoping to get the following hybrid drive with a decent USB 3.0 or TB enclosure. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EIQTOFY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    secondary hard drive on w520

    I have iAtkos ML2 installed on my w520. I partitioned my primary ssd with Paragon disk manager so I still have my Win 7 installed, while having OS X on the second partition. Surprisingly it works fine (besides that I have to boot with -x every time and have no sound, but it works and I'm don't care about sound right now). I use my secondary drive bay to house my storage hdd, which of course is formatted NTFS. Whenever I'm in OS X, it sees the drive in Disk Utility, however it will not mount it. It tells me to run first-aid on it . So I verified the disk, which told me to run repair. Repair disk finished, but it still will not let me mount the drive. Any ideas on what I need to do to get this drive to mount. It would be wicked to be able to access the data on that drive when I'm on the windows side and OS X side. thanks for any help.
  8. I've never posted in a forum like this before, but I have total faith in the people on here. There will be UNENDING appreciation for anyone that can help me out at all. So I have a huge issue going on right now. Basically I cannot get my external hard drive working, which is a huge problem seeing as I cannot apply to graduate school for architecture without the documents on there. I would GREATLY appreciate any help. (Note - I'm not hugely knowledgeable about a lot of the backend tech stuff on computers but am a very fast learner and have a VERY solid grip on how to use macs). Here's the story: I have a 1TB WD external hard drive. I gave it a FAT32 partition so I could transfer documents between my MAC and my PC in my architecture studio. The hard drive was working fine for a while and then last week, I noticed that it gave me an error message saying that I could read documents on the hard drive but I would not be able to copy new documents to the hard drive. Then, the next time I plugged the hard drive into my computer, I got an error message telling me that "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." And I haven't been able to get it to work since. I opened disk utility and the partition's name has changed to disk2s1 from it's original name. Also, disk utility is unable to repair the disk. I downloaded and paid for Stellar Phoenix. It ran for a week and was able to recover some of the files (so I KNOW the files are still there) but I know it didn't even BEGIN to scan the depths of my hard drive because it appeared to freeze at about 5% of the way through the scan (at least I think it was frozen because it was monitoring the same sector for 2 days) and I stopped the scan and recovered some of the files it had detected. These files were recovered to the 2 TB G-Technology hard drive that I have since purchased at the apple store. I then purchased DiskWarrior. DiskWarrior gave me an error message that read: Directory cannot be rebuilt, the file system is unsupported. This disk is not a Macintosh disk. This disk does not appear on the desktop. This disk is 1 TB in size. Disk ID: disk2s1 Sectors: 1,953,458,174 (512 Bytes each) Drive Format: FDisk Partition Scheme File System: MS-DOS/PC Model: WD I cannot for the life of me figure out what this FDisk Partition Scheme means. I used a mac to partition the drive and to prove it, the hard drive was working on the Mac. It's almost as if suddenly, something changed the drive format. After doing extensive searches online, it appears my problem is SIMILAR to this post ->http://forum.voodoop...hp?topic=1593.0 The poster was able to solve the issue, but I don't have the technical understanding to figure out what he did. I attached an image of what the terminal says when I list the drives. If there is ANYONE out there that is willing to help me out, I would truly be endlessly appreciative. This is really an incredibly serious problem for me, and I'm really just ready for this issue to be done with, but I don't want to spend any more money on it, especially if it's something that can be fixed without spending money and I just don't know how to do it.
  9. Hey guys I just wanted to share with you all my speed test my new samsung 830. I made a youtube video which you can check out here: https://www.youtube.com/user/BRKHD1?feature=mhee. This hard drive was installed in my 2009 macbook pro which doesn't have the SATAIII connector but it still makes my computer amazingly fast compared to the old hard drive. The write speed comes in at 194mbps If your looking for a new hard drive I really recommend the 830 samsung series (the 840s just came out too). Anyways just thought I would share if you guys have any other questions please let me know!
  10. Hello everyone, So I am trying to install OS X on my PC and I can not seem to enable AHCI mode successfully. After I enable AHCI my hard drive is not detected. I can not even access BIOS until I unplug my hard drive, then I have to change back to IDE mode in order to make drive detectable again. Tried changing Sata port on the motherboard and reflashing the bios, no luck. I had hackintosh installed on this system a year ago and it worked just fine, cant seem to figure out whats wrong now. Btw it has no problem auto-detecting a sata dvd drive. I have Asus P5Q SE and Western Digital 500 GB hard drive Any help will be appreciated
