Yosemite installation not detecting hard drives [AMD]

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I've been trying to install Yosemite in my pc (specs in the end of the post). At first, it didn't even boot. After booting (with npci=0x2000 and /amdfx flags) when it was time to use the "disk utilitys" tool, I realize that there was no hard drive detected, only the flash drive with the yosemite dmg. I don't know what to do. I didn't have this problem with Mavericks (already installed in one of my hard drives). In the mavericks installation didnt have to use the npci=0x2000 flag either)

 

I've noticed that one of the final lines in the verbose mode before the installation screens shows up is "ATA: Device wake up failed (0x00000003), terminating device...". I don't know if this has to do with the problem or not. I'm kinda new on this.

 

PC Specs:

AMD FX 8320

ASUS M5A88-V EVO

8GB RAM

AMD R7 265 Graphic Card.

 

Anyway, hope you can help me. Any hint on what to do it's welcome.

 

PS: I apologize if there's something that isn't clear. English it's not my native language.

 

Thanks.

are your harddrives in your bios set as SATA ? or IDE ? 

OSX needs Sata 

 

just check the install faq and set up your bios to minimu 70% like that,.. important is SATA and not to use UEFI :T

 

report after checking and restart installer + disk util

    • It's basically a problem with your graphics card, so try doing this.   In the boot options go to graphics injector and make a tick on intel graphics injector.   Also make sure you go to your bios and disable your discrete graphics Card.   After doing these to things, it solved the issue for me!! Hope it helps!
    • I installed Yosemite with the use of iGPU but when I installed the eGPU as mentioned on the title the loading screen stuck on caution. I also tried the bootflags such us  nv_disable=1 and nvda_drv=1 also I tried GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No but still no luck. What might be the possible problem? Image link
