Internal Drives as removable media

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My SATA internal drives are being shown as removable media. I had this problem before with Mountain Lion, and something on the iAtkos ML2 disc fixed it (it was a kext). I just cannot remember the name now.

Any ideas?

Hi everyone !

 

My problem is different but it's a strange problem. I've just installed 10.9 (now updated to 10.9.2 but it didn't changed anything) on my AMD Athlon 64 x2 2.0 Ghz 2 GB DDR2 RAM (using a distro ;-). I have 2 SATA drives, one of 80 GB for OS X and another one of 500 GB for Windows 8.1 / Data / Time Machine. Everythings works fine but for an unknown reason, sometimes the second 500 GB drive suddendly disappear from my desktop saying Ejecting Error, try to disconnect the drive by…etc, just as if it was an USB external drive.

 

System Profiler detects it as a SATA drive, the icons aren't yellow, there's just like any normal drive and most of time, I can read/write on them without problems. I did a Time Machine backup without issues.

 

First I thought that it was a Kext conflict between SuperVIAATA.kext and IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext or AHCI_3rdPartySata.kext but I tried to remove the two last of them and be able to boot fine (Removing SuperVIAATA.kext result as "still waiting for root device"). But the problem persist and I can't figure why !

 

The drive works fine on Windows and shows no errors, SMART state is reported as capable and OK and the 80 GB hosting OS X works fine as well.

 

My desktop is a HP dc5750 with the latest BIOS (configure in Native IDE mode - no AHCI available) and beside this very anoying problem under OS X, it works fine.

 

Any ideas ?

What is your moherboard and chipset?

Like artur-pt said - it's a distro problem.Try to play with retail one - it's much faster and stable :)

Good Luck :)

Hello !

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

My setup is a HP dc5750 Athlon 64 x2 3800+ with 2 GB DDR2 and the chipset is an ATI SB600. But I'm not thinking it's a distro related issue because I have changed my 80 GB SATA HDD and it seems that it was faulty causing the ejection error.

 

My system is now stable so far, I'll see how things will goes on on the next days.

      Hello
      My system is
      Asus Z170-P Motherboard
      i5 6600K Processor
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4095 MB
      Be-quiet 500W PSU
      Crucial 16 GB 2400 MHz DDR4

      BIOS:

      xHCI Handoff enable
      Serial Port disable
      SATA AHCI mode
      IOAPIC 24-119 Entries (enable y disable) two mode stuck

      I can not build a robust and stable system, The system Sierra is already installed but when I restart or shut down, I get the error Still waiting for root device error, but after too many reboot ( from 2 times to 9) start correctly or other times leave too minutes, with prohibited symbol and finally starts.
      Once started recognised correctly HDD.
      Also I tried with a new  EVO860 nvme SSD , but I have the same problem.
       
       
      I dont know because sometimes yes sometimes no, the system stuck in this error
      I add some information files and logs.
       
      sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
      kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67030 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA2A for kext HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_6.kext

        thank you.


       
      Solution by Rehabman;

      Extracting my native/clean DSDT using Clover F4.
      and check with diff DSDT file.

      My SystemMemory addresses in DSDT are mismatched:

      SPEEDY-NUCatched rehabman$ diff ../origin/ ../patched/|grep SystemMemory
      < OperationRegion (GNVS, SystemMemory, 0xC74EC000, 0x06D5)
      > OperationRegion (GNVS, SystemMemory, 0xC74FE000, 0x06D5)
      < OperationRegion (CPSB, SystemMemory, 0xC6CC0F98, 0x10)
      > OperationRegion (CPSB, SystemMemory, 0xC6CD2F98, 0x10)

      and other mistake in OperationRegion(PNVA,SystemMemory,PNVB,PNVL)

      < Name (PNVB, 0xC74F1018)
      > Name(PNVB,0xC7503018)

      My system after too many month , keep stable the still waiting error no appear again, it seems that the problem was with the memory addresses in my DSDT.

      Hey,
       
      I want to use 7 drives on my ASUS X Hero MB.
      The MB supports up to 6 SATA drives, and also has 2 M.2 slots, so I thought it was possible to run at least 7 drives.
      Apparently, it isn´t that easy.
       
      I have a Samsung 850 EVO MZ-N5E500BW M.2 drive that I use as boot drive. It´s a SATA drive, and from what I can read, using a SATA drive in the M.2 slot will either disable one or two of the other SATA slots, depending on which type of M.2 setup you choose.
      So now I can only use a total of SIX slots in the machine for storage, which is a huge bummer, since I need the extra SSD drive.
        I can of course connect the extra SSD drive via an adapter and use an external USB port, but that´s a very impractical solution.   QUESTION:
      Can anyone tell me if it´s possible to somehow connect 7 drives to my ASUS X Hero MB?
      (Buying a new PCIE M.2 drive is not an option, since the M.2 drive I have is the boot drive, and I don´t wanna F around with cloning, replacing etc)   Thanks in advance!

      Hi All!
      I have a successful build but im experiencing some power issues.

      After reboot my 2 WD Black drives are not to be found. Only by powering down, unplugging power cable and turning on, do they reappear. 

      Furthermore some USB ports dont have power after sleep.

      Any help for these issues?

      This project is actually two years old, but despite the aging SATA standard, still current as an idea.
      And of course - conforming hackintosh different thinking.
