First post.

During the install process for El Capitan, when selecting a drive for it to install on, the system created a drive in the bios labeled Mac OS X.

This disk does not exist. Unhooking all hard drives leaves it as the only bootable choice in the bios.

Even after clearing CMOS, it was still there.

The flashdrive we used for Unibeast is now not an option.

Is there any way to delete this ghost of a hard drive?
