Install Fails Because of Disk

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 


Today I tried to install OS X 10.8.5 by Niresh on my AMD PC with 16gb of DDR3 ram. I am 100% sure that my computer is capable because I have ran it on VirtualBox. Anyway, I had Windows 8.1 so I erased the disk in the disk utility and formatted it to Mac OS X (Journaled). Now, if I try to install it fails.


So I did a little experiment. I opened Terminal, and I entered this command :

touch test

Sadly, this told me that my file system is Read Only. 


Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
