Mavericks Vanilla Installation doesn't find my drive

41 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi.

When I boot my USB with Mavericks installation, in Disk Utility I can't find my drive (both in ATA and RAID mode).

Unfortunatly my BIOS hasn't AHCI mode (it's a Dell computer), and so I can't install it. Last year I had the same problem with ML and I remember I have solved it by adding a .kext file in the system/library/estension folder of my usb drive with ML installation. Which file do I have to add or how can I solve this problem?

No. I have a XPS 8000. It' still possible flashing the BIOS?

Unfortunatly that kext doesn't work. I have also tried AHCIPortInjector and ATAPortInjector but they don't work.

Unfortunatly both kext don't work. I have put them in the sistem library estension folder of my usb drive with Mavericks installation. Is this correct?

And how can I add it? If I boot from my USB drive I can't see the disk. Do I have to remove again the disk from the PC and connect it with SATA-USB Dock and then boot from the usb drive and add that file with the terminal from another usb in which I put the file from another PC?

you put it in usb drive /Extra/Extension, run myfix from myhack or disk ulitity to repair pemission then you boot from the usb again.

So I copy from another computer the files in a usb drive, than I boot my USB stick with Mavericks installation, on Chamaleom I selection PS X Base System, I go to disk utility, I select my partitions OS X, I repair permission (how?), I boot again with the USB Stick but now on Chamaleon bootloader I select my partition OS X, I add the kext, and I will be apple to boot directly from my hard disk without errors.

 

Is it correct?

you would use the machine you make usb installer, copy the kext above to /Extra/Extention of the usb or the hard drive you use to plug in you hackintosh. when you finish that, then you run myfix from myhack to generate new system cache, when you don't do this, it will not load the need kext above. this one first

 

you could try one extra way like this, after put the kext above when you boot with chameleon add boot flag -f to see that work

that is not the big deal, you use torrent to get like iatkos lion version to it up and make the usb maverick  installer with lion osx that. or you could use the virtual box to get the maverick usb installer.

Do I have to add that kext in /extra/extension of the drive or USB? In both cases I can't because I haven't another mac that reads Mac Zos Filesystem.

virtual box to make virtual mac

you have virtual mac then you create the usb installer.

with that virtual mac you can add those kext to that usb installer no problem. then you do a regular install to the hard drive.

    • I have put it into clover drivers 64uefi folder on Yosemite thru High Sierra which allows me to edit my High Sierra disk if needed in Yosemite system.   There is no functionality of apfs in other versions but it does allow other clover bootloaders and systems to recognize the HS apfs drive or open it for inspection.   If you don’t have it you can’t see your HS drive or access it in another macOS version.
    • Hi! Is it possible to get codec AD1981 running with AppleHDA on HP Compaq 8710w? It works nicely with VoodooHDA. Speakers and HP are switching automatically.  Internal and HP mic also work - no switching in SysPref but it works when mic is plugged in and internal mic works when hp mic is unplugged.   It has same weird pathmap - connected directly:  Playback: nid=5 [pin: Speaker (Analog)] | + <- nid=3 [audio output] [src: pcm] bindSeq=00008001 nid=6 [pin: Headphones (Grey Left)] | + <- nid=3 [audio output] [src: pcm] bindSeq=00008001   But inputs are really weird. There are 5 nodes from input to HP mic/Internal mic nid=4 [audio input] | + <- nid=21 [audio selector] [src: mix] bindSeq=00000003 | + <- nid=12 [audio mixer] [src: mix] bindSeq=00000003 | + <- nid=30 [audio selector] [src: mic] bindSeq=00000001 | + <- nid=8 [pin: Microphone (Grey Left)] [src: mic] bindSeq=00000001 + <- nid=31 [audio selector] [src: monitor] bindSeq=00000002 | + <- nid=24 [pin: Microphone (Analog)] [src: monitor] bindSeq=00000002 Can pathmap like that even work with AppleHDA? What codec should I patch? I tried patches from AD1984 but no luck.    These are manually patched verbs: 00571c10 00571d01 00571e17 00571f90 00570C02 00671c20 00671d10 00671e21 00671f03 00771cf0 00771d00 00771e00 00771f40 00871c30 00871d10 00871e81 00871f03 00971cf0 00971d00 00971e00 00971f40 00a71cf0 00a71d00 00a71e00 00a71f40 01671cf0 01671d00 01671e00 01671f40 01771cf0 01771d00 01771e00 01771f40 01871c40 01871d01 01871ea0 01871f90 01971cf0 01971d00 01971e00 01971f40   Codecgraph and linux codecdump attached.

    •   Yes, 'cause APFS log is coming before clover boot screen.
    • and you suspect apfs on before clover issues
