Help: SATA drive is not visible for High Sierra install

Recommended Posts

I am following Olaria’s instruction to install OSX 10.13.6 released 2020 but I am unable to see my SATA hard drive during the install process (in diskutil). My motherboard is an Asus P6 T Deluxe v2 (x58 chipset Legacy motherboard with no UEFI support). Problem remains no matter what setting I use (IDE, RAID or AHCI).

Note: My hard drive was detected no problem with Niresh 10.13 USB release.

Can somebody help me or suggest a way to make my harddrive appear during the install of MacOS Olarila 10.13.6?

Thank you MaLd0n  for your help. Unfortunately that didn't work.

With that kext on the Orila USB I get a crash with the non entry logo  before I even get to lay eyes on the installer itself.

FYI 1: I use "Set Nvidia to VESA" because I have a GTX 260 video card (without that I get a reboot of the computer).

FYI 2: I have copied the kext to the EFI partition of the USB in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other at first (that resulted in a crash) then I used EasyKext Pro to install the kext into Library/Extensions (but the crash is still happening) with AHCI or IDE or RAID in BIOS.

I have taken the ZIP then did a REPLACE (should I have done a MERGE instead?) and the result is the same.

OBSERVATIONS (if it can help) : I did face an identical situation with the previous 10.13.6 Olarila package that was provided here and was able to work around it (in IDE, RAID & AHCI) by using the zip that is associated to Tech Labs' video (unfortunately that doesn't work with the 2020 package).

Somehow I am not confident that the problem is the USB to be honest because then how would you explain that the older packaged Olarila 10.13.6 and Niresh 10.13 go through the install every single time without fail on that same USB key and same USB port?

That being said I will do my due diligence and leave no stone unturned and will test all the USB ports on the PC with 4 different USB keys with :

*Olarila Stock
*Olarila AHCI Injected  
*Olarila EFI replaced
*Olarila 2020 Stock
*Olarila 2020 AHCI Injected 
*Olarila 2020 EFI replaced 

And then come back here with my results. Obviously it’s going to take some time but hey it is Social distancing time! Lol.

Leave no stone unturned is a good idea. I had a similar problem with my first Hackintosh when snow leopard came out but perseverance finally came through and the problem was resolved.  

I know you addressed your video card issue by making it vesa but that isn’t a great solution and the 200 series nividia cards aren’t really compatible. Get a compliant card that will work with the later OS versions.
