Dear people,

Situation:

Mobo Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 (EUFI)
OS 10.9.4
- 3rdparty SATA kext installed through Multibeast 6.4.2

My Hackintosh runs great but i have 1 bad problem:

1 internal SATA disk (connected to Marvell) becomes regurlarly unmounted and mounted automatically, which gives me the message "disk not ejected properly.
While this random automatically unmounting-mounting-unmounting... i can hear the drive making click sounds also..

Do you think this disk is dying or is there maybe a post install solution so it can be fixed ?

I do ask the latter cause i have experienced this behaviour a few years back on another Hackintosh and i maybe have fixed it somehow then, can't remember anymore.

Any help appreciated !

If your drive is unmounting and mounting spontaneously not associated with sleep or hibernation, and you're hearing clicking sounds, my guess is the drive is beginning to fail. Sleep often causes the 'drive not ejected properly' issue, but that's an entirely different issue.
