Hi guys,

I'm trying to install High Sierra on my build:

asus h270-pro
i7-7700k
msi gtx1050 ti
Samsung 960 m.2 250gb
1tb WD caviar blue HDD

I can get to the installation but none of the HDD shows up in the disk utility!

Please help, I knew it should have been supported natively!

Try the following in this order:
  • Press your Windows key and 2 to check View >√ Show All devices
  • If that dose not show your disk , exit Disk Utility Interface and click "Utility>Terminal"
  • In Terminal Bash ------- type the following command and press ENTER
    • diskutil list
  • This should list all the disks attached to your MoBO that includes your USB /DVD/ and SATA and PCIE connectors.
  • Go through the Terminal output and locate your target disk.
  • From the last column "IDENTIFIER", find the disk ID of your disk [Example: "disk0" ] ; you may have a different disk#
  • Using that disk number, type one of the following commands depending upon whether you want to format the disk in HFS+J or APFS in GPT mode (=GUID Partition scheme)
  • Note there is 1 space separating the character strings
  • diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk0 GPT JHFS+ highsierra o b
  • diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk0 GPT APFS highsierra o b
  • The whole process will be very fast
  • After completing the command, open the Macos Installation option to find the disk named "highsierra" [You can type any name you like in any case (Upper/Lower/Mixed) of your choice]
  • Start your installation.
