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?
