- Integrated Intel HD Graphics 520
I have been reading a lot of these posts and can't seem to easily find someone who is having the same issue as me. I am trying to figure out why it won't give me the option to choose my SSD as an install location. It only allows me to choose the USB I am using as the bootable disc, and then when I did choose it just to see what happens, it obviously wouldn't let me.
I would love if anyone could explain to me what I need to do in order for it to be possible to install on my SSD. The BIOS recognizes the SSD, so it is not a problem of the motherboard recognizing it. I was originally not able to get the Apple logo to load all the way without seeing code logs pop up and the system restarting. I fixed that by adding "-x" to the boot arguments under options from the clover installer.
Now I can get to the El Capitan installer and everything works fine, until I have to choose a hard drive location. My SATA configuration is set to AHCI so that is not a problem either.
I'm having the same issues with my current Hackintosh Installation. Everything works, but I'm unable to see my SSD to install OS X onto when I'm on the Disk Utility section of the Apple Installer. I'm only seeing my USB Stick, which--like you said--isn't able to install OS X onto. I noticed that you reformatted your SSD to get things working, but what did you mean by refomatting your SSD? Did you mean a complete reformat of the SSD itself (i.e. you completely wiped everything off of it) or did you create a new partition space on your SSD?
