Fresh hackintosh build yesterday, it's not reading an external NTFS drive, am I missing some kexts?

The drive works and can be read on my 2010 Macbook Pro running El Capitan.

what was the OS installed EL Capitan, MacOS Sierra, Yosemite ? If you connect A usb Flash drive in whatever the port you are using USB, USB 3.0, is it working?

It's El Capitan 10.11.6

yeah small usb 2.0 drives work, my usb 3.0 external drives work as well.

Tried on other USB ports, but it won't detect NTFS, doesn't show up in System Profiler

I would try to see if it is only NTFS related or USB related. Try using another USB flash drive or External HDD to NTFS Format. if you don't have important data on that drive try formatting it to MacOS extended Journalized and see if it works. And of course post result. :thumbup:
