Hi,

I'm on Sierra 10.12.6 and am pretty much impressed by the capabilities of a Hackintosh.

I have a major problem though : my second drive (HDD 4 TB WD Black) is some times recognized by the OS / Disk Utility, but sometimes it isn't..

When it's connected, it often disconnect itself all by itself and doesn't mount until I disconnect the SATA connector from the physical hard drive.

I tried to install SATA-100/200-series-unsupported kexts OR install the UEFI Clover driver HFS-Plus-64.efi but didn't worked

Have any clues on what it could be?

Last thing I did was to install HFSPlus-64 as Drivers + EFI Drivers in Clover Configurator

But to make the drive work again, I unplugged and replugged it on the Motherboard, and restarted the computer.

Wish this solution will last but it disconnected after a few restarts of the computer..

Have any clues on that? :)

UPDATE : None of my SATA drives are working right after a restart of the computer.

They are recognized though by the MB in the BIOS everytime.

Safe Mode doesn't make them show neither

Any ideas?
