Default Partition Issues installing Snow Leopard on my 10v - 08-09-2010, 10:09 PM


I'm working on hackintoshing my new 10v with OSX 10.6.3, netbookbootmaker 8.4 and a mac.

I was able to create an OSX installation USB hard drive, and the 10v boots into the OSX installer without an issue.

My problem is:
When I try to use disk utility to partition the 10v's hard drive, the only hard drive that the OSX installer sees is the USB hard drive. It doesn't see the 10v hard drive at all. Even when I went to the diagnostic program that comes with the OSX installer, it can't find any ATA or S-ATA devices.

The 10v works fine with the win7 installation still on it. The only thing I noticed is that the bios is a07. I couldn't figure out how that would mess things up, but I might try to downgrade it to a05 anyway.

Any advice?

Thank you kindly.
