So I have been given a sony pcv-a1112m which is a fairly old touchscreen PC , it’ll be ideal to Hackintosh just for music DJ decks (only Mac compatible)
The big question is can this be done , I’m very capable of the unibeast Install but F2 bios is very basic and you cannot config anything , hence when you go through the boot loader and then onto disk utility there is no 1Tb hard drive to erase , im pretty certain this is down to no options in the basic bios , any work around appreciated or I’d guess Sony sucks , thanks , attached a few pics of motherboard etc

I am afraid there is no way out if your computer BIOS is so restricted that it can't even set AHCI mode in SATA. MacOS requires AHCI mode if you are using SATA drives.

Is there a BIOS update for your computer you can try?

This is one of my primary reasons for staying away from these OEM machines : Restricted BIOS settings.
