    Default iDeneb 1.4 Install (cant see my drives)

    Hello All,
    I am still quite new to the who OSx on non mac hardware install and after dual booting fine on my laptop, thought i would give my PC a go.

    The problem i have is this:

    Boot to install GUI is fine. When it asks which drive to isntall to, it shows no drive.

    I click on disk manager, it starts to load and then flicks back to the disk selection screen.

    I click on "hardware analysis"? (or device manager type thing) and it does show my drive there and shows its two partitions.

    I have tried pressing F8 at DVD boot time then starting in verbose mode (-V). I see an error like:

    AppleNForceATA: found 0 units

    Then i hear the HDD shut off.

    Its strange that it says that, yet it sees my drive under the "device manager", but not under disk manager.

    Any ideas on how to make this work? I have nforce 590?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    Try changing AHCI mode in bios if you are using SATA drive.

    I'm not sure what causes the setup to take you back to "select destination" box. But I have a method they might resolve your problem. It is basically making your partition ready for the os so that setup can install without you needing to use disk manager. Follow the steps from the last post http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/f181...htm#post407396. Try install osx again. If it still doesn't work, use macdrive to format that parition and try the install process once again. Good luck with your attempt.
