Hi,

Just bought a 4tb Seagate Expansion Desktop drive and attached everything. It lights up and all but just won't show up under Big Sur latest.

I have checked that external drives are ticked, tried creating a new usbMap.kext after it was connected. It's connected to a usb 3 port on the motherboard.

But no sign of it in diskutil or finder? HELP!

Does the external drive show up and work in Windows or Linux?

How is the drive formatted - GUID/MBR/EXTx?

duh opened my opencore config again and noticed that the usbmap.kext was unticked so ticked that again and unticked inject all. My misstake. Guess maybe it got unticked when I updated it or something.
