Hey all, I thought putting an SSD in my Hack will be a simple matter. After waiting for weeks and buying 3 different products to install this SSD on my MacPro case with the drive sled, I finally got it installed and then startup my machine.

And... nothing. The new SSD isn't seen by my BIOS, and therefore it's not also seen by OSX.

Clover 4097 took a long time and then the machine rebooted. I went to BIOS and couldn't find the SSD in BIOS.

Any ideas on what to try next?

Thanks.

MOBO is GA-z87MX-D3H
Bios F7 (8/12/2014)
Clover 4097

Connected my SSD to a USB Drive Dock just to make sure I don't have a defective SSD. The SSD works using the USB Drive dock. I was able to format it to GUID Journalled.

But connecting the SSD back to the SATA ports on my motherboard, Clover 4097 just hangs on "scan entries"...
